Vessel Delay Notice

There is still ongoing vessel delay caused by ongoing congestion in Australian ports and severe congestion in originating countries in Europe, USA, NZ and  Asian ports.  It is possible that some of these issues from Asia will ease past the Chinese New Year , however we expect to see ongoing delay caused by congestion in the USA and NZ for the foreseeable future.

Please find the below delays to vessels schedules.

Carriers will continue take corrective action to try to avoid further delays by changing port rotations and omitting ports on export voyages and future import voyages.  All carriers and trade lanes are being impacted and consequently all vessels to and from Australia will continue to see small and large delays often at very short notice.

We understand that this is creating major disruptions however it is an industry wide scenario that we are unable to control.  We will continue to update as quickly as possible via our reporting and advices from our sales and customer service teams and our delay notices.
