Vessel Rotation changes for Thursday 10/09

Good Day All,

Below is an extract of notices received today from shipping lines of changes to schedules and port rotations. The amount of changes today only highlight the issues facing Sydney which will add further disruptions to supply chains and empty container evacuation. We also consider the additional strain it will put on other ports which has been touched on with our Melbourne update last week that can be found here. We also recommend reading our link to Shipping Australia’s commentary here which provides additional insights on the issues.
