Located in Bluff Harbour, at the southern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, South Port is New Zealand’s southernmost commercial deep water port.
From its base on the 40ha man-made Island Harbour, South Port is proud to provide a full range of marine services, cargo and container shipping, and on-site warehousing for domestic and international customers. The port is ideally situated to service Southland’s significant export and import industries including aluminium, timber, fisheries, dairy, meat, wood chips, stock food, cement, alumina, fertiliser and petroleum products.
South Port prides itself on adding value to its import and export customers, providing customised solutions to meet their needs and partnering with them to achieve their operational objectives.
South Port, along with the rest of the nation, moved to Alert Level 2 (AL2) on Thursday, 14 May.
The Port continues to operate under the Covid-19 standards put in place throughout AL4 and AL3. This means that personal hygiene, physical/social distancing, signing health declaration forms, having records of movement for contact tracing, wearing PPE, among many others, will still be mandatory under AL2.
The team at South Port would like to thank the businesses that have been interacting with our Company as we navigate our way together through the changed environment.
For any company/business returning to the Port it is important that they have Covid‑19 systems in place to ensure that the current high standards achieved over the past couple of months are maintained. If there is any doubt then please contact the Port for assistance. The following may be useful to gain a better understanding of AL2:
In light of the positive progress the country has made, now is certainly not the time for us to become complacent. We need to continue working together and maintaining our standards.
This has not been an easy time with all of us feeling the effects of the Alert Level restrictions and changes. Be kind and look out for one another and stay safe.
We’re all in this together.
From the Team at South Port
