IMPORTANT INFORMATION
DEAN World Cargo Urgent Notice – 21 Nov 2020
 

Dear Valued Customer,

DEAN World Cargo understands the importance of keeping our customer updated on all important changes within the supply chain arena. In this installment of the DEAN World Cargo monthly bulletin, we discuss the following changes.

1. Port Botany and Sydney Stevedore Terminals Update
2. Domestic Transportation Challenges
3. Shipping Lines Update During an Unprecedented Peak Season 

Port Botany and Sydney Stevedore Terminals Update

Whilst the congestion and delays caused by the industrial action in Sydney witnessed a significant improvement, it is fair to say that the situation is still far from optimum.

Currently in a negotiated ceasefire period with the MUA with all protected industrial action removed until 31 January 2021 to advance EBA negotiations in both Sydney and Brisbane. Multiple drafting sessions are booked in hopefully these will be completed and ready for a vote as soon as possible. Also, an additional service has been secured at Hutchison Ports Sydney (CAX Service) which is calling Monday to Wednesday each week. To help accommodate this extra work, an extra 30 casual employees have been recruited. This will help with the higher peak demand of labour throughout the week.

There will be an 8 hour stoppage for Sabre and MUA Sydney AGM stop work meeting from 0600 – 1400 on Tuesday 24th November 2020 All Waterside and Landside (inclusive of Rail) operations will be stopped from 0600 – 1400. Please ensure you plan accordingly.

Domestic Transportation Challenges
 

As a result of the unprecedented challenges in all ports within Australia, a new logistical challenge has emerged, namly the local transportation and delivery of imported shipments. All local operators of container delivery are currently struggling to cope with delayed shipments, the changing date if availability, as well as coping with the volume of deliveries within Australia.

Please rest assured that your service team at DEAN World Cargo will spare no effort in ensuring that you receive your goods as planned, however there will be incidents where these endeavours may not be possible. We will closely liaise with all our valued customers to ensure that contingency plans are in place.
 
Should you have any questions in regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact your DEAN World Cargo Account Manager.

Shipping Lines Update During an Unprecedented Peak Season 
 

Shipping Lines continue to suffer from shortage of equipment into Australia, causing shipments to be delayed in departure, especially when coupled with the current high demand in imports.

The demand continues to be higher than supply for all imports from China into Australia making space availability extremely scarce, and subsequently pushing the rates to unprecedented levels.

These conditions will seamingly continue to the end of the year and may even stretch into the initial months of 2021. We will ensure to keep all our valued customers updated.

 
Should you have any questions in regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact your DEAN World Cargo Account Manager.
