Stockwell International Urgent News Alert 21st Jan 2021

Melbourne Empty Container Congestion

Dear Customers, 

Stockwell International has received notice from Container Transport Alliance Australia of surging containerised import volumes through the Port of Melbourne, along with average empty container evacuations by shipping lines, has caused a build-up of empty container stock that has reached critical levels in Melbourne.

This has resulted in most of the empty container parks in Melbourne being near or at operational capacity, causing delays in import container de-hires, difficulties in accessing export empties in some instances, expensive redirections, truck queuing and added landside logistics costs.

As depots are becoming full, we ask you to please speak with your sales rep and keep in mind delays this may create. To see notice, click here
