Empty container dehire in Melbourne and Sydney effected by high winds


To our Valued Customers,


We have been advised of the following by the Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) Pty Ltd:


“Due to high winds today (9 August 2019), a number of empty container parks (ECP) and terminals in Melbourne and Sydney have understandably closed for safety reasons. 

In the event that transport operators are turned away, most will be forced to take the empty container to a staging yard until the ECP or terminal reopens.  

This would generally result in additional cartage costs and increases the risk of container detention should last free day be Friday/Saturday/Sunday.”


Feel free to contact your BRi Customer Solutions Representative, should you have any further queries or concerns in relation to this matter.


Keeping you updated,

BRi Customer Solutions Team
