Continuing Vessel Delays

Schedule delays and port rotation changes continue through Australian ports. The changes are a direct result of repetitive heavy weather systems passing through New South Wales during the previous 4-5 weeks which resulted in the suspension of pilotage services and closure of the Sydney port.
 
In addition, schedule changes and delays are also being experienced due to the Industrial Action being undertaken by the Maritime Union of Australia (ACA Alert - Nationwide Industrial Action Continues at DP World Terminals) This is occurring across a number of Australia's main container terminals and unfortunately remains an ongoing issue which is creating delays.
 
Listed below are current changes to schedules which remain subject to change.
