Further to our advice of 13th May, the delay incurred to the schedule of the Southern Trader by the recent crane repairs have presented an opportunity to proceed with the previously advised swap of the Southern Trader into the Tahiti trade and the Southern Moana into the Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga trade.
We will proceed with the above mentioned swap during the port call of both vessels in Auckland in early June, forward schedules will be as per below and these changes are reflected in this week’s schedule:
As we mentioned in our note of May 13th, the shipping industry and NPDL have been and continue to be faced with a variety of unprecedented and escalating challenges exacerbated by rapidly increasing costs. These challenges mean that in the current operating environment, delivery of regular services require a level of agility in terms of vessel and capacity deployment that is also unprecedented. We are well aware that these changes impact your supply chains and our team continues to work hard to mitigate the impact on your business.
Should you have any questions or queries please contact your NPDL representative.
