We would like to update you on the current situation within the Sydney port precinct.
All terminals and empty container parks are experiencing delays due to higher than expected volumes.
Port Botany and empty container parks are experiencing delays of 2-4 hours per truck.
This is having a flow-on effect and a large impact on truck turn arounds, and unfortunately, there will be delays in deliveries.
Overnight, the Stevedore’s system also failed for a period which resulted in all slots being cancelled and not being able to collect containers.
This will further impact operations and container access over the next few days.
Unfortunately, there may be costs incurred that are beyond our control and any additional charges will be passed on.
We will continue to keep you updated with any further developments on the situation.
If you have any questions relating to the above or require further information, please contact your local VGL representative.
Thank you for your continued support.
