Industrial action throws container freight into turmoil

SUDDEN industrial action at Sydney's Port Botany has thrown Christmas container freight into turmoil this week.

ATA NSW container section Chairman Mike Moylan urged customers to be patient with transport operators, who were caught in the middle during this peak period.

"Strike action at the Port has prevented many trucking operators from accessing and moving containers," Mr Moylan said.

"It is important that customers realise their transport providers are doing everything they can to expedite the containers out of the port.

"I'd like to ask customers to be understanding during this time. We are hopeful the action has been resolved, allowing normal freight movement to continue."

Port Botany is currently operating at peak volumes due to the Christmas period, which can last until mid to late January.
