Container Detention Has Become a Nationwide Problem

With all ports around the country suffering from empty container parks being at capacity it is becoming more difficult to return empty containers withing the free time allowed.  As highlighted in yesterday’s newsletter additional costs are now being borne by importers in Sydney (Sydney Empty Yard Congestion Fees) and this could quickly become a Nationwide problem unless addressed by the shipping lines.

As members of the Container Transport Alliance Australia (CTAA) we forward this media release which highlights the cause and potential costs being occurred (CTAA Media Release - Container Detention).  The CTAA is lobbying Governments, regulatory authorities, and Port operators on the matter.
