Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have received advice from the Victorian International Container Terminal (VICT) executive that there have been two additional positive COVID-19 cases detected, bringing the total to 4 cases.

VICT are performing contact tracing to identify possible close contacts and performing another deep clean of the facility.

"At this point in time, we can't confirm when the terminal will be re-opened as the new cases will need to be assessed. By tomorrow 25/09 afternoon, we will be in a position to provide an update on our reopening plan

No Slots will be released until we have a clear reopening schedule

* Extensions to import free time and storage paid through dates will be applied to all imports onsite in line with the period that we remain closed prior to resuming operations.
* No LIST or NO SHOW Fees will be charged over the closure period
* Export cut off's will be adjusted to suit revised vessel arrival times once those are locked in.

We appreciate your patience and understanding"
