Dear Valued Client,


Please note that Wallenius Wilhelmsen have advised that effective immediately, used cargo for RO-RO shipments from all countries to Australia, New Zealand, Noumea, Papeete, Reunion and South Africa must be pre-treated with either Sulfuryl Fluoride or heat treatment in compliance with Australian and/or New Zealand requirements.

This must take place as close as possible to loading (maximum one week prior).

For areas covered by compulsory treatment requirements, documentation must be in accordance with Australian/New Zealand requirements, whereas for areas not covered by Oceania pre-treatment requirements, treatment will not need to be conducted by a government-approved treatment provider, but will require treatment certificates.
