Severe Weather Alert for Brisbane

Severe Weather Alert for Brisbane.

A severe weather alert has been issued for waters from the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast as a result of Cyclone OMA.

Brisbane port is warning that if winds and conditions become dangerous then the port will close immediately and will remain closed until it is safe to resume operations.

All pilotage services have already been cancelled for today, Friday and tomorrow, Saturday due to current rough seas.

The port closure will disrupt any container collections/deliveries, our Transport Team will keep affected clients advised of further developments as soon as further information is available.

The vessel delays now being encountered in Brisbane could result in port arrival changes at other Australian ports, depending on the port rotation of each vessel. As usual, affected vessel arrival/departure dates will be updated to affected clients via Communicater messages.
