The schedule above does not apply to Dangerous Goods. Please contact Sadleirs at your earliest convenience to organise any movement of Dangerous Goods requiring delivery prior to the break – our facilities are not licensed for any DG storage and as such deliveries need to be accepted prior to Xmas and will recommence from Monday 6th of January* – excluding retail supermarket products

All freight despatched after the above dates will move as per our Christmas / New Year scheduled services. Goods will be made available for delivery on the days we operate over the festive season. We are dependent on receivers being open and accepting goods during this period.

The normal schedule will not operate during this period. There will be fewer services with movements to all ports being subject to demand. It is important to Sadleirs that we give as many of our employees leave to be with their families over this time. As a result, staff levels in all depots will also be reduced from normal during this time.

We would like to thank you for your great support during 2019 and we wish you and your staff the very best for the festive season and in 2020.

David Cox

Chief Operating Officer
