Sydney: Empty Container Park Chaos

Dear Valued Clients,

Sydney empty parks are now overflowing and at breaking point. Today Empty Parks are shutting due to full compacity, over 100 redirections, shipping lines not answering phones or emails.

We are experiencing multiple redirections after booking slots into empty park’s and now on many occasions returning to our yard until an empty park has capacity. There are currently over 100 redirections in Container-chain and growing.

Please discuss with your shipping lines for confirmation on empty returns, as from tomorrow (22nd August 2020) we will be charging for any redirection or return to our yard will incur lifts & storage.

We advise you to pass extra fee’s onto your shipping lines.

Sydney Redirection Charges as per below:

Redirection Fee:               AUD 130.00 + GST + Fuel

Futile back to yard:          AUD 160.00 + GST + Fuel

Tolls:                                 AUD 45.00

Empty Lifts:                      AUD 45.00 per 20GP

AUD 65.00 per 40GP

Storage:                           AUD 5.00 per day / 20GP

AUD 10.00 per day / 40GP

Unfortunately this is out of our control and appreciate your understanding with this matter.

Please pass this on to any staff within your business whom the notification is relevant.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
