It is understood that Shipping Australia announced today that it will support DP World Australia’s application to the Fair Work Commission to terminate the strikes of dock workers across the country on the grounds that the strikes may cause significant damage to the Australian economy and New South Wales.


   Logistics Baba learned that in the past week, strikes took place at the Patrick, Hutchison and DP World terminals in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. The strikes involved wages and working conditions, and a large number of liners charged additional congestion charges. The Botanic Garden Port is the latest strike location.


DP World Australia said in a statement: "The new strike application filed at Port Botany-including a ban on our three largest customers for at least the next two weeks. -Endangering the supply chain of key products and exports, putting unacceptable pressure on the economy."


   Affected by this, Hapag-Lloyd became the latest liner of congestion charging yesterday, charging A$300 per TEU for containers entering and leaving Sydney.


   CMA CGM and MSC and other departments have also taken similar measures.


  Loading and unloading work plays a vital role in the supply chain. The scope, duration and nature of the strike action, as well as at such a critical moment in the country, will ultimately adversely affect Australian households and businesses.

The Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, Michael McCormack, who is responsible for infrastructure, transportation and regional development, said: “Australia relies on maritime transport. 99% of our trade is carried out by maritime transport. Therefore, the parties quickly reached a solution to Is important."
