Melbourne Christmas Period Transport - Reminder
Many businesses will close down for the Christmas holiday today and tomorrow, or are already closed down, but containers will most likely continue to arrive. The terminals operate every day during the break except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. To prevent wharf storage, our transport operations will continue to work during the break. For importers not able to take delivery of containers between 18 December and 8 January, containers that are picked up and held during this time will attract the following surcharges:

Cartage Back to Yard for Holding: $160 per 20' / $200 per 40' - including lifts
Storage at Yard (after 3 days free): $10 per 20' / $20 per 40'

Public Holiday Surcharges will also apply to containers that have to be picked up from the wharf on the following days:
Sunday 24 December - $110 per container
Tuesday 26 December - $220 per container
