UPDATE: DP World Industrial Action


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for partnering with Kenter and your continued business.


We regret to inform you that DPW has experienced a complete nationwide shutdown due to IT issues. As a result, all operations have ceased, and it is unlikely that slots will be accessible for collection today.

This interruption will impact both import and export movements, as well as some scheduled deliveries.

We are actively monitoring the situation and will provide updates as soon as more information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time.

Urgent: Electrical Trades Union Industrial Action Update at DP World BNE

DP World Brisbane wishes to inform you about the ongoing Electrical Trades Union Protected Industrial Action at our terminal.

This action has resulted in disruptions to several modules and equipment operations.

While discussions are underway to address the situation, we are committed to keeping you informed of any progress made.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period of industrial action.

It is our priority to reach a new Enterprise Agreement that not only addresses productivity concerns but also ensures operational efficiency.

Urgent: DP World Brisbane Terminal Volumes Update as of 20th February 2024

We would like to bring to your attention the ongoing high container volumes expected at DP World Brisbane Terminal in the coming days and weeks.

To enhance terminal Turn Time (TTT), we urge you to maximize the available capacity during weekends. Our vehicle booking system has ample space to accommodate container collection before storage initiation.

We encourage you to utilize the available capacity across all shifts, especially this upcoming weekend.

Your cooperation during this period is crucial in managing the heightened volumes effectively.

DP World Industrial Action – Update as of 8th February 2024

For Brisbane Terminal Update

As we gear up for another busy week ahead, we wanted to provide an update on our current operational status and potential challenges we may face.

This past week, we managed to navigate through with minimal disruptions despite the vessel bunching at terminals. However, as we approach the end of this week, we anticipate similar challenges, which may lead to reduced throughput at the terminals into early next week. Thankfully, we haven’t encountered any issues at terminals so far this week, which is a positive development.

Our side loaders are already fully booked until Thursday next week. To ensure smooth operations, I urge you to make your bookings as early as possible. Additionally, if any of your clients have the flexibility to accept after-hours deliveries or spread their deliveries throughout the day, it would significantly help in managing the volume during peak slots.

While we are committed to doing everything within our capacity to mitigate delays, given the circumstances, we anticipate some delays may occur. Rest assured, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and promptly notify customers of any impacted deliveries, should they arise.


Thank you for your unwavering support and understanding as we navigate through these challenges together.

DP World Industrial Action – Update as of 5th February 2024

As we prepare for the upcoming week, we anticipate a significant surge in activity, particularly regarding vessel arrivals in Brisbane.

The situation is expected to be compounded by the temporary suspension of PIA at DP World, resulting in an accelerated arrival of vessels. Currently, our side loader capacity is fully booked until Friday of next week. Therefore, we urge you to promptly make your bookings to secure space.

To mitigate the congestion during peak times, we encourage flexibility with delivery schedules. If your clients can accommodate after-hours deliveries or distribute shipments throughout the day, it will greatly help alleviate the strain on our resources.

Given the circumstances, it is probable that deliveries scheduled for early next week may extend into the following week. Despite our best efforts, delays may be unavoidable. Rest assured, we are actively monitoring the situation and will promptly notify you of any impacted deliveries.


We appreciate your ongoing support and understanding as we navigate through these challenges.
