Port of Melbourne Operations has contacted our industry partners CTAA yesterday morning with the following important update about the potential for more Port Protest actions in the coming days:

Zim Sparrow is scheduled to arrive at Webb Dock early on Thursday 11 April.

We also anticipate activity in relation to the A15 Economic Blockade to Free Palestine campaign which is designed to disrupt global supply chains and cause economic harm.

Port of Melbourne is again working with Victoria Police to prepare for possible protest activity.

Necessary steps are being taken given the short time between these two events, including additional security resources and increased security patrols for the duration of the visit by the Zim Sparrow and the A15 campaign.

These potential closures will place additional pressure on Transport Operations with  timeslots for both Import, Export and empty containers (especially reefer exports, which may sit in our yard on power longer), as well as placing a strain on our delivery fleets.

BR International will work closely with our Transport Operators to do all in our power to minimize the impact this may cause.

We will communicate any delays and additional charges that may be applicable as a result if there are closures.


Thank you for choosing BR International!
