January 20th 2016 | Stike Action

Hi team,

Please note that the Maritime union have decided to strike again. This will be for 4 hours in Brisbane and Melbourne on the 25th January (0700-1100) and 48 hours in Sydney on 25th to 27th January (starting 0600). Patricks have applied to Fair Work Commission Australia to cease industrial action to allow focusing on negotiations with the MUA and are awaiting their response.

As a result, the Grasmere Maersk 554S / 602E will now omit Sydney. Import cargo will discharge in Brisbane and connect onto the Maersk Gairloch 551N. Export cargo will be rolled onto the Maersk Garonne 603E. Both will result in a delay of 1 week.

DP World do not have the capabilities for any subcontracting in week 4 and as a result we are facing delays of up to 6 days. See below for the latest expected delays.

Updates to our vessels are as follows:

Fremantle
Maersk Garonne 603E – (23/0700 ~ 23/2300) : 64 hours delayed to reduce bunker consumption into AUS from expected delay at Sydney from strike.
