Official Motukea International Terminal Partner Advisory



Dear Port Users,

Following the last “Transport Industry Engagement” in late 2022, ICTSI SP understood from Port Users (mainly trucking companies) that there was a need for MIT to operate its gates on 24/7 basis for receival and delivery of cargo.

Basis such feedback, ICTSI SP management agreed to operate MIT’s gates on 24/7 basis, as a trial of 2 months (see advisory MITL ADVISORY - GATES OPEN 24/7 | ICTSI SPL )

As of this writing, MIT has been running such trial for 8 weeks now.

After internal review of the data gathered in relation to gates transactions, we have identified the following:

  • 93% of gates transaction happen during the Day Shift (08:00 AM - 08:00 PM).
    That means that only 7% of the gate transactions happen during the Night Shift (08:00 PM - 08:00 AM).

Gates Transactions

Night Shift


  • When breaking down the Night Shift (7%) gates transactions, 5% happen between (08:00 PM - 10:00 PM) and only 2% happen between (10:00 PM - 12:00 AM).
    Transactions during Night Shift after 12AM are marginal.


8 PM-10 PM


10 PM-12 AM


  • Sunday’s Day Shift has similar positive uptake/utilization levels of any other Monday to Saturday Day Shift (08:00 AM - 08:00 PM). 

Given these findings, ICTSI SP management has decided that, as of 3rd May 2023, MIT will operate its gates following below POST-TRIAL schedule:

  • Monday to Saturday during Day Shift (08:00 AM - 08:00 PM)
