A New Year and a newly announced DP Surcharge...

ALERT FROM DP WORLD LOGISTICS AUSTRALIA PARK 1

DPW Logistics has evaluated notification availability & utilisation over the last number of months.

Further to the off window surcharge introduced in October, Carriers have continued to arrive outside their designated notification time zone. This continues to contribute to congestion and delays in processing those Carriers adhering to their arrival times.

Original analysis in August indicated 79% of these were off zone in total. Further analysis in Nov show 84% were early or late (as in outside their 30 min zone).

DPW will be amending the Notification fees from 1st February 2019 as follows:

If a truck arrives at DP World Logistics more than 60 minutes prior to the start of the nominated "Notification Window", the carrier will incur an "Off Window Surcharge" of $25.50 per booking

If a truck arrives at DP World Logistics more than 60 minutes after the end of the nominated "Notification Window", the carrier will incur an "Off Window Surcharge" of $25.50 per booking

If a truck arrives within its "Notification Window", the charge will be $16.50

DPLW would also like to remind Carriers of depot opening hours currently in force and changes effective from 7th January:

  • Park 1- Gate B2 is open for Empty pickups and dehires between 5am and 10pm Monday to Friday (previously 4am)
  • Park 1 is open for empty pickups ONLY between 10am and 5pm Mondays to Fridays
  • Park 2-Gate B5 is open for Empty Pickups and dehires between 6am and 4pm Mondays to Fridays
  • Park 2 is also open between 6am and 12 noon Saturdays-Fees as per CAA.

Road Freight NSW has requested a meeting with DPWL.

Over the course of late last year, Road Freight NSW has requested meetings with ContainerChain and specifically their Singaporean based CEO. To date, we have not had a response.

We will keep you posted.
