Empty Container Parks Overcapacity
Redirection of containers and cancellation of timeslots.
Dear valued customer,
Regrettably, we continue to experience issues in accessing empty container parks. With many park operators understaffed and at capacity, an alarming number of containers are being redirected or rejected, often at the last moment or when our vehicles are already in queue.
When this occurs, we typically divert the containers back to our yard. This further reduces our yard capacity and needlessly occupies our drivers and vehicles with additional unplanned trips.
While this problem is Australia-wide, presently Sydney and Melbourne operations are the most impacted.
As a natural result of these additional movements and volumes, our own yards are now also reaching or exceeding capacity. To help ease the pressure for customers, we have engaged supplementary storage sites at our expense to facilitate the additional containers.
We will continue to provide updates as they emerge.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your local Mondiale
VGL representative for any further information or clarification
