Update on DPWA Cybersecurity Incident & Industrial Action

Dear Valued Customers & Partners,

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have been in contact with DP World senior management in order to update members on the latest on the protected industrial action continuing around the DP World terminals nationally.

Unfortunately, there is little change in that DP World today have announced another update suggesting the members of the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMMEU, MUA Division) have, despite continued efforts to reach an understanding, outlined a further series of work bans and stoppages up to and including Monday 11 December.

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have today received the following statement issued by Mr Nicolaj Noes, Executive Vice President Oceania – APAC of DP World addressing the cyber incident overview, response and recovery, investigation and security, support for impacted individuals, collaboration and gratitude, acknowledgement and thanks. 

Despite these recovery efforts, transport companies have communicated that in some cases, surcharges for containers arriving into DP World terminals will be applicable. Also, surcharges for weekends and/or after-hours collections will be applied as they strive to retrieve containers within their allotted free time.

These bans & stoppages continue to significantly impact our services, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this period. Our team is committed to minimising disruptions and ensuring the smoothest operations possible. We will keep you updated on any further developments.

We acknowledge the potential impact of these disruptions; however, please be advised that SILA will not assume liability for any additional charges arising from these industrial actions.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership and should you have any questions or concerns, kindly reach out to our dedicated team!
