QLD Ekka Public Holiday

Dear Valued Clients,

Wednesday, 16th August 2023 is a Public Holiday in Queensland for the Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).

SILA Global’s head office in Brisbane will be open with ‘skeleton staff’ on this day and we appreciate your patience during this time.

Important things to note: 

  • Most Port of Brisbane terminals will still be operating during this time and free time will be ‘per usual’.
  • Patrick FI has advised the Terminal will not be opening for R&D operations and will close at 2130hrs Tuesday 15th August and re-open 0600hrs Thursday 17th August.
  • Empty parks will be closed so empty containers cannot be de-hired on this day and detention-free days will be ‘per usual’.
  • Cargolink has advised they will be closed with no staff onsite.
  • Most transport carriers are closed however, if they are operating, they will be passing on a Public Holiday Surcharge if services are required on this day

If you have any questions or concerns, kindly contact your SILA Logistics Coordinator or imports@sila.net.au / exports@sila.net.au accordingly.

Thank you – SILA Global Team
