Rail operations

Further to the previous advice received 22 March 2019, we understand that there were additional impacts on rail operations from 2200, Friday 22 March 2019 until 0600 today, Monday 25 March 2019 – furthermore the rail operations will not operate from 2200 tonight until 0600 tomorrow, Tuesday 26 March 2019.

In the event of closure of the DP World Australia rail operations, alternate arrangements are essential using receivals and deliveries by road. This will particularly impact exporters with potential delays and additional costs associated with the use of rail / road combinations.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
