COVID Infections Severely Strain Australia’s Container Logistics Chain

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

What difference a variant makes.
For the last two years, container transport operators have tirelessly kept international container supply chains functioning with little fanfare and with COVID protocols keeping their staff and customers safe.
However, the rapid spread of the highly infectious COVID-19 Omicron variant has changed the game.
The Australian container logistics chain is under enormous strain.  No part of the chain is unaffected.

CTAA provides the latest summary on the supply chain challenges facing the sector.

CTAA is working with Governments and agencies, in conjunction with organisations such as Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA), so that they understand the implications for the economy, as well as the need for critical freight workers to be considered in the changing protocols for COVID-19 testing & isolation periods, and the availability of Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT) kits.
