peak season and would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a happy and
safe holiday season.
dwell times for import containers in December has come back to 2.9 days from
3.6 days in September. There is still a need to restore averages to 2.2
days or lower which we were experiencing during the first half of 2018.
have been managing the balance of the shipside and road side operations and
once again would like to express our appreciation of the efforts the road
transport community is making in managing within the limits of our respective
acknowledge of the ongoing pressures in the supply chain and our own
limitations, we have decided to continue to extend the demurrage free time
period by another day (ie 4 days after the completion of discharge) for all
vessels until 31 January 2019. The Public Holidays of 25 and 26 December
and 1 and 2 January are also demurrage free days.
will be no extra free time for DG containers or active reefer containers
which should be prioritised.
is critical that we continue to focus on clearing containers off port as
quickly as possible and we will re-evaluate again in late January to consider
the position from 1st February 2019.
As always, please contact the Customer Service
Team for issues you may have with specific containers.
