NSW Empty Container Parks Over Capacity

Operational conditions are at breaking point in NSW with a surplus of imports over exports in recent months leading to Empty Container Park (ECP) congestion. Subsequently some nominated ECP’s are not accepting any empty containers, this may result in additional fees for staging and redirection costs
Rubbing salt into the wounds, we are experiencing the avoidance of relief from shipping lines on container detention dehire fees (despite the fact that many shipping lines have not evacuated empty containers to ease congestion) and multiple ECPs (nationally) taking the ‘soft’ option of rapidly, and in quick succession, increasing container dehire booking fees
