      DCN - INDUSTRY WELCOMES MELBOURNE ON-DOCK RAIL PLANS
      Freight Trade Alliance director and Australian Peak Shippers Association secretariat Paul Zalai said they saw "significant merit" in driving efficiency in the rail supply chain.

      But Mr Zalai also argued any fee increases should be offset in order to ensure the port remained competitive.

      "While a reduction in the fee structure as announced is welcomed (now $9.75 per TEU as against the originally estimated cost of $15 per TEU), the FTA / APSA position to the PoM and Victorian government remains that any fee increase must now be offset elsewhere to maintain the port's competitiveness," he said.

      "The introduction of the new tariff only adds to the need for regulation to wind back the stevedore administered infrastructure surcharges and vehicle booking system fees." ... read more

      THE NEW MODERN SLAVERY ACT IN AUSTRALIA – WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN?
      Thank you toLKASIA CZARNOTA, Lawyer and FRAZER HUNT, Partner - Mills Oakley for thier commentary in the Summer 2019 edition of Across Borders.
      "While the term 'slavery' is often associated with shackles and imprisonment, 'modern slavery' is an umbrella term used to describe various ways in which different entities or people exploit a person who cannot refuse or leave their place of work. This includes people who are trapped or forced into labour due to threats, violence, coercion, power imbalance or deception.

      Australia has only recently begun to tackle the question of how to make corporate supply chains more transparent and hold large entities accountable in the fight against modern slavery. This is a particularly prominent issue in the transport sector, where supply chains involve overseas partners and regular movement of people as well as goods and services" ... read more

          US Markets slipped from record highs, amidst fears of rising 'coronavirus' infections and deaths. The crises is considered 'under control' and 'contained' as markets focus back on economic fundamentals, thereby charging to new record highs in equities. The problem is the 'coronavirus' is spreading at an alarming rate, with stories from China triggering global anxiety and apprehension.
