Melbourne Port – Unexpected industrial action 8th December

To All Our Valued Clients,

We have received notice this morning of unexpected Industrial action at Melbourne Port at both Patricks and DP World terminals.

DP Word have advised us that gates will closed between 0800hr to 1400hrs today. Patricks have announced they will cease operations immediately with an expected resolution approx. 11pm this evening.

At this point it is unclear whether this has any correlation to the ongoing VICT protest.

This unexpected Action will have an effect on our operations and it may have an effect on your expected deliveries. Our Cartage operators will make contact with clients affected by this today, please note this may impact deliveries for the next few days as the back log is cleared.

Any further information will be sent through as received, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your Account Manager or myself.
