THE NEWS this week was dominated by the story of Portland Bay, a bulk carrier which found itself in imminent danger of grounding on the rocks of the Royal National Park, south of Botany Bay.

In the latest episode of The DCN Weekly, we explore the story in depth and hear from the Port Authority of New South Wales, the ATSB and a marine pilot who helped bring the ship alongside at Port Botany.

It is a story of peril, disaster averted and the heroic efforts of tug and rescue crews.

In other news, Pacific International Lines welcomed a new CEO, WiseTech Global acquired Bolero and the nation celebrated NAIDOC week.

The DCN Weekly is a new 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 the week and are included in each Monday’s newswire.

Thanks for listening.
