To our Valued Customers,
We have been informed of further changes and industrial action as it relates to DP World Sydney work Stoppages.
This will have major impact on servicing unloading of vessels, slot booking times & loading of vehicles, as hours of operation have been further cut leaving only 10hrs of operation.
This will leave service providers with no option but to cart containers back to their yard for on delivery the following day.
Below is from DP WORLD Port Botany and outlines challenges faced with the limited capacity;
