Consultation has begun on reform of security identification cards for ports and airports. The cards allow unescorted access to secure areas.

Under the plan, the Department of Home Affairs would be the sole issuing authority for maritime and aviation security identification cards (MSICs and ASICs). The federal government is pledging to bring industry with it to "co-design" the reform.

"We know that Australia’s aviation and maritime transport infrastructure is targeted by a range of organised criminals, terrorists, and malicious foreign actors," Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews said.

"ASICs and MSICs give the bearer unescorted access to some of our most sensitive trade and cargo links. Working with industry to co-design improvements to this process by moving to a single, Government-issuing authority will assure the integrity of these cards and further harden the aviation and maritime sectors to exploitation and unlawful interference. I encourage industry to have their say during the consultation process. Your continued support will ensure any vulnerabilities in the current schemes are addressed – better protecting all Australians."

Last month, the Mexican Government announced that the tariff-free quota announced in June 2021 would be extended to 30 June 2022.

The Mexican and Argentinian governments have announced recent policy changes to beef imports. This may create export opportunities in Mexico and Chile once Australian beef production increases.

Australian exporters should assess the commercial viability of the Mexican and Chilean markets given changed market conditions. Exporters should also monitor announcements from the Argentinian Government about possible extensions to their beef export restrictions.

Australian beef supplies are now limited because of herd restocking. Exporters are generally looking to supply existing customers as opposed to expanding into new markets.

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have received advice from DP World Port Botany that the Hansa Offenburg has been sent out to sea due to 'Quarantine Contamination'.

Related to this Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment direction, all discharged imports on the ground have a "Terminal Hold".

Initial FTA/APSA enquiries to the department indicate that this action is in response to the detection of Burnt Pine Longhorn Beetle and that containers will be held under surveillance and may be released after inspection.

The Victorian Transport Association - VTA (VTA) says it welcomes Premier Daniel Andrews’ announcement that a local Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) factory will be set up locally.

The government will support Lumos Diagnostics and its delivery partner Planet Innovation with building the Victorian-based factory which will include an innovation hub.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration is still approving the production of RATs at the new facility.

Lumos will produce one million tests every month from April. This will increase to three million a month after July. By October, the facility will manufacture up to 50 million RATs annually.

To meet ongoing demand in the coming months, the state government will obtain several million tests from Lumos.

The Asia-Europe contract season is well under way, with ocean carriers cherry-picking large-volume shippers and locking them into multi-year deals.

It is a template being followed by transpacific carriers, where annual rate negotiations are said to be “well ahead” of the norm for 12-month contracts that expire at the end of April.

Moreover, on secondary tradelanes such as the transatlantic, some lines are reported to be refusing to open negotiations on contract renewals, such is the gulf between existing contracts and the short-term market.

Shippers had been left “punch-drunk” by ocean freight rate increases in a “one-sided contest”. What’s more, it’s difficult to see a change of course ahead, with the fundamentals stacked very much in favour of the carrier community.
