EASTER AND ANZAC DAY HOLIDAYS

This year Good Friday falls on the 18th April with Easter Monday on the 21st April. With the ANZAC day holiday on the 25th April this will mean that in a 10 day calendar period there is only 3 working days, Tuesday 22nd , Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th April.

The terminals and shipping lines are unlikely to make any allowance for public holidays. As a result the chance of containers incurring either storage at the terminal or detention charges for late return of the empty container is high.

If you have containers due to arrive prior to Easter and the cargo is not urgent we would strongly suggest that you delay these shipments so that they arrive after ANZAC day. If your supplier is arranging the freight on your behalf then please make them aware of the holidays and delay shipments wherever possible.
