To our Valued Customers,
Please note that there will be stop work meetings at Terminals around Australia next week due to the AGM (Annual General Meeting) for the MUA (Maritime Union of Australia).
This continues to compound pressures on industry as we currently work through peak season volumes.
The Nation-wide stoppages will continue to cause vessel congestion along with ongoing challenges such as; slot shortages, no extended free time as well as added pressures on carriers needing to book slots overnight and have containers staged where possible at their own cost.
Below is a summary of the planned stop work across all states;
