In our previous alert we announced Stage 4 business restriction to apply in Metropolitan Melbourne from 11:59pm Wednesday 5 August aimed at controlling the further spread of COVID-19 (Melbourne Enact Stage 4 Business Restrictions to Fight COVID-19).
Due to the restrictions implemented our Container Freight Station (CFS) operators have been forced to limit resources to two-thirds and limit workers movements within the warehouses. Each worker will be assigned a designated area and they must remain within that designated area throughout their entire shift. This means workers cannot move from one area or warehouse to another, reducing labour output.
As a result, the CFS will have less resource and flexibility to deal with volume fluctuations which may result in delays in container unpacks and cargo availability.
Our Transport and Logistics Team will keep you updated regarding these delays and any impact on delivery of your LCL or Air freight.
