    Below list is Express Post satchels sent in the last week from the Snobbery to the below postcodes in the "Express Post Network"
    1-2 days most places, a few 3 day and one from Monday not delivered yet.
    It's nearly "normal" for express from our data.

        Goes to show it's a bit pot luck - I see two to the same postcode, sent at the same time, arriving 28 hours apart.

        Pot luck for sure, they might have been to the same person as we have had plenty separate in transit and meet-up at the destination a couple of days apart.
        There's no pattern to the mess of pandemic freight.

      Apart from one order in Aug which took 9 days, all have been 3 or 4 days which is the same as pre-covid. To Perth outer Metro. Good Job!!

          Just an FYI.

          In a flurry of emails from the sea freight companies overnight, it appears that the current industrial action on the Australian docks is starting to flow into pricing.
          The below additional costs are in USD and per TEU (20' container so a 40' is double the price).

          MSC are adding what can end-up being AU$3000 per 40' container and OOCL are stopping AU bound bookings altogether for two weeks.

          Sheeze... as if COVID wasn't enough, now the ports are giving us grief. What does this mean for coffee? It could easily translate to $0.50/kg on new arrivals as the duties are paid on the total landed price. For something like the Yemen that we are in the middle of moving around the planet, it will be more like $1/kg (or more) in additional costs as it's far from a full container load.

          --------------

          MELBOURNE & BRISBANE
          PORT CONGESTION SURCHARGE (CGS)
          MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company wishes to confirm that vessels continue to experience significant delays upon arrival at ports throughout Australia. The congestion in the port of Sydney, initially caused by weather related incidents and then further amplified by recent industrial action, is now causing extended delays at both the ports of Melbourne and Brisbane.
          Delays and wait times for vessels to berth in Melbourne are being reported as over 9 days, while in Brisbane the wait time for vessels to berth is now 10 days. In Sydney, wait times are reported in excess of 17 days.
          MSC has been proactive in adjusting our vessel schedules to help assist Australian exporters and importers from having to face long and unnecessary delays in their supply chain. MSC also recently took the step of making temporary service adjustments to our Capricorn Service and Kiwi Express, as well as implementing a new Sydney Shuttle service, in order to help mitigate some of these congestion delays.
          However, due to the ongoing nature of the congestion and also in order to maintain our liner services at the required levels, a Congestion Surcharge of USD 300 per TEU
          will be introduced at the ports of Melbourne and Brisbane

          -------------------

          RATE RESTORATION EX ASIA TO AUSTRALIA
          MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company wishes to advise clients that a rate restoration will be implemented for all sailings from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam to Australia.
          With effect from 15 October 2020 (proforma sailing date), the following increases are to be applied: USD$500 per TEU

          -------------------

          Temporary Booking Suspension to Australia – AAA network

          Due to the continuing terminal congestion caused by industrial actions in Australia, the AAA network has been severely disrupted with vessels being held up waiting for berths. To avoid long idling of containers and to minimize the uncertainty of customers’ supply chain management, OOCL regretfully advises that we will temporarily stop accepting new bookings for two weeks with immediate effect from Asia, Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Europe, North America, Latin America and Africa to Australian ports covered by the AAA1/AAA2/ASA/AWX services.

          OOCL is currently reviewing all alternatives to reopen booking acceptance earlier on the AAA network, if possible, and we will advise our customers with the latest update. For reefer bookings, we ask you to contact your local sales or customer service representative to discuss the available options.

          Thank you for your understanding on this difficult decision, and we look forward to your ongoing support in the future.

            We have also been advised:
            1. Empty Container Parks are full – Empty container parks in Sydney are at capacity and not accepting returned empty containers. There will be additional costs to store these containers as well as redeliver once a space is available. Shipping lines will also be charging container detention beyond the allowable free time.
            2. Offloading Sydney Containers at other Australian Ports - Certain shipping lines have declared a Force Majeure situation in relation to the Sydney port and terminals and intend to offload containers at other Australia Ports. The costs associated with repositioning these containers to Sydney may be at the expense of the importer.

              ... Hey sorry, your expensive import destined for Sydney is now in South Australia. Here is an additional bill because of the backlog and yeah, good luck getting it across a few borders at your own expense because we played the Force Majeure card and now shrug our shoulders at your problem....
