Victorian International Container Terminal (VICT) has paused its operations today due to 4 active Covid-19 cases in Melbourne, Australia. 


The Freight and Trade Alliance (FTA) received notification from a VICT executive that there have been two additional positive COVID-19 cases detected. 


This brings the total to 4 cases after two initial cases were detected on Monday 20th and Thursday 23rd September 2021. 


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


VICT executive explains "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.
" says the representative. 


* 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 will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates where necessary. Stay up to date here: TGL Newsroom
