Fremantle GRI – Effective 1st July 2022

To Valued Customers & Partners

As we have been updating in previous notices, due to COVID-related staff shortages and congestion issues in Fremantle, many transport companies are struggling to fill driver and warehouse positions. This shortage of staff has led to wages increasing by approximately 60%. Unfortunately, carriers cannot cope with the congestion and increase in wages, therefore will need to pass on an emergency transport GRI for all Fremantle steel unpack services effective 1st July 2022. While these issues are impacting all major Australian ports, rate increases have not been implemented nationwide at this stage.

The fuel surcharge applicable on all steel unpacks will be updated in the monthly ancillary notices and is currently increasing due to issues such as the Ukraine conflict etc. Some general information can be found here.

Effective 1st July 2022
Fremantle 20′ Container GRI: Additional AUD 220.00 per 20′
Fremantle 40′ Container GRI: Additional AUD 220.00 per 40′

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and kindness throughout this period.
