Industrial action at Australian Ports & Terminals has been suspended at least for the month of October
Dear all Valued Customers
We are pleased to confirm that the ongoing industrial action at Australian Ports & Terminals has been suspended at least for the month of October!
We have seen massive disruption to the South East Asia service network to all Australian ports while Industrial action was in place
Despite this good news, the significant schedule disruption around the Australian coast will take time to improve.
Whilst all of the shipping lines expect to see improvements within 10-14 days, Sydney congestion may take up to 3 weeks before it improves
Based on this, excluding Sydney, the carriers are pleased to advise that with immediate effect booking acceptance will resume from Asia, Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Europe, North America, Latin America and Africa to Australian ports covered by the AAA1/AAA2/ASA/AWX services.
Sydney temporary booking suspension will remain.
All carriers will be constantly reviewing Sydney Port congestion conditions and all alternatives in an effort to reopen booking acceptance to Sydney as soon as possible.
Should you have any queries regards the above, please contact your local Customer Service Representative.
Keeping you updated,
BRi Customer Solutions Team
