Dear Valued Customer,


LMF has received further updates regarding the temporary closure of  Qantas Freight Terminal in Melbourne.   Any further information that becomes available will be passed on as quickly as possible.


If you have any urgent enquires regarding shipments affected, please contact LMF on (03) 9009 5200.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation during these trying times.   


Please see below Statement from Qantas freight





Following our advice this morning regarding the temporary pause of our operations in Melbourne, we wanted to provide you with an update so you can plan accordingly.


The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) conducted a full assessment of the sites earlier today, and we will continue to work with authorities so we can resume operations as soon as possible given the importance of keeping your freight moving.

A few of our Melbourne-based team were able to help process some urgent medical shipments which were already on route to Melbourne this morning. However, both the international and domestic terminals have now paused operations completely and will remain closed for at least the next 24 hours. Until operations resume, freight cannot be lodged or collected from either terminal in Melbourne.

As a precaution, we've removed flights into and out of Melbourne from our online booking portal until midnight tomorrow (4 Aug 2020), and we recommend you seek alternative arrangements for any urgent freight movements as both freighter and passenger services are affected.

We'll resume operations as soon as we're able to and we're continuing to assess other options to minimise disruptions during this time.

Thanks once again for your patience and understanding. 



The Qantas Freight Team
