We have been advised this morning that the Maritime Union of Australia are holing a 24 hour “Pilot Strike” in Sydney from today, this action may impact on planned deliveries.

Our Transport Team will keep you advised if any of your deliveries are affected by this industrial dispute.


The unauthorised picket line is still in place at Melbourne newest terminal VICT, this has now been operating since late last week and all deliveries to/from VICT terminal are affected.

While it is not one of the main Melbourne terminals it is handling various vessels for a number of shipping lines on a trial basis. The other Melbourne terminals are operating as normal with no disruption.

Again, our Transport Team will keep those clients advised of any shipments that may be affected by this industrial action.
