UPDATE: 17th December 2015 - Rail Service Disruption to and from WA


Due to the recent derailment and its impact on the East-West freight network we are still experiencing extensive backlogs resulting in large freight volumes within our operations. This will result in some freight being delayed.
 
To deliver your freight as quickly and efficiently as possible we have maximised our operational capacity whilst maintaining safety standards.

Sadleirs understands the urgency of deliveries at this time of year. We will continue to work through the freight backlog methodically, safely, and with the highest priority.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this incident and thank you for your understanding.

General Manager - Operations

 

UPDATE: 11th December 2015 - Rail Service Disruption to and from WA


Following our notifications regarding the recent derailment, we are pleased to advise that the East-West rail line has been reopened and the delayed trains have started moving.

Due to the extensive backlog, it will take considerable time before all services return to normal – particularly given this period is busiest time of year.

We will be working throughout the weekend at all our depots in an effort to deliver freight to our customers as expediently as possible.

We will continue operating additional ad-hoc road services to supplement our capacity - please contact your local Sadleirs representatives for alternative road options.

Thank you again for your understanding.

UPDATE: 9th December 2015 - Rail Service Disruption to and from WA


Following the recent derailment notices, our rail provider Pacific National has confirmed services remain set to resume tomorrow afternoon, 10th December.

As you can understand, delays will continue as the substantial backlog of freight is cleared and services return to normal. Our operations will be working throughout the weekend at all locations across Australia, with extra shifts and overtime scheduled to unload and deliver freight as fast as possible.

Alternative road services will continue to operate up until Christmas – please contact your local Sadleirs representative for alternative road options and any status updates you require.

We will keep you updated via our website as further information comes to hand. We apologise for the inconvenience this derailment has caused and thank you for your understanding.

UPDATE: 7th December 2015 - Rail Service Disruption to and from WA


Following our previous correspondence regarding delayed rail services to and from Perth, Western Australia caused by a derailment 350km east of Kalgoorlie last Friday – our rail provider Pacific National have advised the forecast for the track to re-open will be Thursday evening, 10th December. This forecast is heavily dependant on weather conditions at the incident site.

Please find an updated message regarding the incident from our linehaul partner, Pacific National here.

As you can understand, many consignments are delayed in transit and a substantial backlog of freight is anticipated which will delay services in the lead up to Christmas. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and will do our utmost to secure alternate methods to deliver freight. Please contact your local Sadleirs representatives for alternative road options and any status updates you require.

Sadleirs will continue to update clients through the website as any further information comes to hand.www.sadleirs.com.au/news/
