A considerable increase in the INFRASTRUCTURE FEE, currently charged by DP World container terminal in Melbourne, and the introduction of the same at the Sydney terminal is proposed, effective 3rd April 2017. (No change in Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth at this point in time.)
These fees are currently paid by the FCL carriers who handle the container retrievals, to which a small administration element is added, before they pass on the charge.
Protest to the above has been lodged by local carrier groups with the relevant authorities awaiting further outcome.
We will provide further updates as received.
