United States and Canada to Australia - Schedule Delays in Sydney Due to Industrial Action

(Morristown, N.J.)…Due to a series of recent industrial actions, vessels are experiencing schedule disruptions in Sydney.

The Port Authority of New South Wales, the Australian Maritime Officers Union (AMOU), and the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) have been in ongoing negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement which have not yet been concluded.

The terminal operator is no longer able to maintain normal berthing windows as a result of the industrial actions and ships have to now wait for a berth to become available.

While the situation is still fluid, we will ensure that all efforts will be made to ensure schedule updates and impacts are provided in a timely matter.

Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have.
