THIS week’s episode of The DCN Weekly features special coverage of the 2022 DCN Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards. Record numbers of guests came together in Melbourne on Thursday to celebrate the industry’s achievements.

In the news, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority banned Panama-flagged bulk carrier Costanza from Australian ports for three months for underpayment of crew wages.

Also, unions representing Svitzer Australia’s maritime workers gave notice of yet more protected  industrial action.

And finally, a bill passed through the lower and upper houses of New South Wales that would lift the cap on container throughput at Port of Newcastle.

The DCN Weekly is a podcast from Daily Cargo News providing a regular roundup of the biggest stories in Australian shipping and maritime logistics.

New episodes are published to our website at the end of each week and included in each Monday’s newswire.

Thanks for listening.
