Aussie families are paying more for their everyday goods because of excessive port charges imposed on truckies.
Hard-working truckies already doing it tough financially are now being hit with unfair port surcharges.
This is clearly an example of price gouging, with truckies being slugged financially simply for presenting their vehicle at the port.
It’s time multi-national stevedoring companies stopped using Aussie truckies as ATMs.
The NSW Government continues to sit back and let the big stevedore companies fleece local truck operators.
Truckies deserve a break from escalating port surcharges. So why won’t the Government act?
Port charges have risen by 89%, without justification, without consultation. This is hurting the competitiveness of our exports, costing NSW jobs and income.
Multi-national stevedore companies must end the practice of outrageous port surcharges being imposed on NSW truckies.
And the State Government must stamp out this rip-off. If elected to NSW parliament on 23 March, NSW One Nation (led by Mark Latham) will do everything it can to get a better deal for our trucking industry and the great people working in it.
