Sydney & Brisbane – Further increases to Empty Container Slot Fees


Dear Customer,


Coinciding with ongoing increases in Terminal Infrastructure / Access fees, the return or collection of empty containers are rising dramatically across Sydney & Brisbane Empty Container Parks (ECP’s).


The increase comes with the promise from Empty Container Parks of further investment in additional equipment and providing adequate service levels to cater for the heightened BMSB intervention along with servicing peak season demands.


Industry bodies continue to meet with the Commissioner where they have highlighted these charges and the lack of transparency and what appears to be an abuse of power. More to the point the organisations “shipping lines” who in many cases employ the terminals and empty parks to manage their containers should be the ones paying these charges.


Transport providers have no choice but to pay the fees in order to access these facilities and collect / de-hire containers.


Charges levied from 1st September 2020 will be as follows;


  • Sydney Empty Return/Collection Fee:           $75.00
  • Brisbane Empty Return/Collection Fee:         $65.00


Unfortunately the fee increase must be passed on within the container logistics supply chain.


BRi will continue to keep clients updated with any further development. Should you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your BRi Customer Solutions Representative.


Keeping you updated,

BRi Customer Solutions Team.
