Empty Containers

Finally some goods news to report, as Maersk earlier this month sent an empty vessel to both Sydney and Melbourne to pick up and return empty containers back to Asia.(Below link to article and photos). The Maersk Soroe, which is the longest vessel to call at Port Botany was deployed as an empty sweeper vessel to collect empty containers and this will certainly help relieve some of the pressure off the empty container parks in these two ports, as well as help get these containers back to the various load ports in Asia that are struggling with the lack of equipment.
