Over the past 4 to 6 weeks we have experienced excessive delays with Truck turnaround times at Hutchison Ports Brisbane. The main reason for these delays are:
- Excessively long wait times – We are regularly experiencing 2-4hrs wait per Truck;
- Time Slots cancelled with minimal notice from Hutchison Terminal (resulting in entire delivery programs to be re-worked); and
- Vehicles regularly turned away (Due to – Terminal Equipment break downs, Operational issues etc.)
ACA have been in daily consultation with our trucking companies and Hutchison Terminal over this period. Unfortunately, Hutchison are yet to offer a solution to these continuing delays. We will continue to endeavour to minimise the effect this has on delivery performance and truck waiting time charges.
