The team at K Line have provided the following update on port congestion around Australia…
Please note, due to vessel and berth congestion in most ports around the country which is resulting in extended waiting times for vessels to berth and commence cargo operations, the port dates on the schedules have been adjusted to nearest predicted cargo operations commencement dates. These dates are continuously being monitored and will be updated if there are any changes. Please note that the adjustments are not applied to vessels that have not yet departed overseas ports.

AAT Port Kembla was at 60% capacity this week and vessel wait times are nil.
Melbourne yard is sitting at 95%+ capacity and vessel wait times are about 6 days and additionally extended hrs at berth. Expect MEL to remain at capacity for next 3 weeks as usually most vessel arrivals from east coast & west coast fall within similar window due to rough weather.
