After detecting a rare snail, never before seen in Australia, the Department of Agriculture has ordered the re-exportation of 900 new Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The snail detected is being referred to as the Heath snail and is understood to only be found in south-eastern Europe, and certain places in Canada and the USA. Mercedes-Benz have stated that they plan to re-export the vehicles inside shipping containers to Zeebrugge, Belgium, rather than the usual method of shipping them in roll-on, roll-off ships that are normally used to transport new vehicles. This is to avoid contaminating the roll-on, roll-off ships, or other vehicles on them. Presently, the vehicles are being kept in strict quarantine near the ports they arrived at in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and Western Australia, while they are measured to be placed on pallets, and loaded into shipping containers.
