Maersk – Temporary booking restriction to Sydney

Dear Valued Clients,

Due to ongoing congestion and industrial action at Sydney port, Maersk has experienced disruption to their network schedule, causing significant delays from proforma schedule.

To remove uncertainty for our customers supply chain and to assist handling of our vessels calling Sydney, Maersk is taking the difficult decision to temporarily stop acceptance of all new bookings from Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa and India Sub-Continent to Sydney effective immediately.

It is expected Maersk will re-open booking acceptance for Sydney from 1st October, but will continue to review the situation and open earlier if possible.

Booking acceptance remains open for all other Australian ports.

We thank you in advance for your continued support and look forward to continuing to connect your supply chain.

Kind Regards

SILA Customer Service
