Dear Valued Clients,

Please find below notification which has been received from Patrick Stevedoring in regards to their Port Botany redevelopment commencement date.

Customer Cutover Email

Please note that Patrick Terminal Port Botany will start to ramp down operations from Thursday 26th March 2015 leading into a full terminal closure which (will include all rail operations) on Sunday 29th March 2015 for a total of 4.5days.

On Thursday 02nd April 2015, Patrick Terminal will reopen as an automated facility with a ramp up period in place. With Easter holiday period beginning Friday 03rd April we anticipate that extra pressure will be put onto other Port Botany Container terminals during the closure and holiday period which may well lead to congestion and delays in being able to collect containers from wharf.

We would appreciate any clients with containers arriving from 25th March and approx. 10th April please request maximum amount of free time available, taking into consideration some lines will begin free detention period when containers are discharged NOT first available.

If any questions or concerns please feel free to contact your SILA representative.

Kind Regards
SILA Customer Service
