Removal of Sydney Port Congestion Charges
Positive news regarding the Sydney Congestion Charges.
These charges originally introduced by the shipping lines, due to industrial action are finally being removed.
As of yesterday and continuing through till April, shipping lines will no longer be charging these fees.
On the flip side though, we have received news that DP World have announced that on the 1 May 2021 they will introduce further increases for both import and export containers effecting Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
FTA & APSA will be meeting with the Victorian Minister for Ports and Freight, the Hon. Melissa Horne to discuss the surcharges and fees that the shipping lines, stevedores and empty container parks keep implementing and their effects on the market.
