Sofrana ANL: Schedule Adjustment

Dear Valued Customer,

Please be advised that due to labour shortages in Singapore, the dry docking of the Sofrana Surville is taking longer than we first expected. As such we have made several changes to schedules in order to cover as best we can.

Sofrana Tourville V256 will now discharge cargo destined for Honiara, in Lae on 18 April. The Tacoma Trader V424 will collect this cargo in Lae 2 days later, and deliver to Honiara. This allows the Sofrana Tourville to proceed from Rabaul, directly back to New Zealand where she will commence V257 with planned calls in Tauranga, Auckland, Brisbane, Port Moresby and Lae before sailing to Singapore for dry docking.

The Tacoma Trader V424 And V425 will call all ports within our New Zealand, New Caledonia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands Westpac rotation.
We are also pleased to advise that we can offer the Flora Delmas V0522R which will make a special call in to Brisbane, to uplift cargo directly for Port Moresby and Lae. The Flora Delmas is scheduled in to BNE on the same day as we had previously shown for the Sofrana Tourville V257 on earlier schedules. Please note that we will move bookings currently booked on Sofrana Tourville V257N from Australia to Port Moresby and Lae, on to the Flora Delmas V0522R.
The Sofrana Surville is expected to be released from Singapore in early May, and will re-enter service into the Westpac trade.

We do apologise for this ongoing disruption to our services, and look forward to the completion of the dry dock programme and the return to regular services.
Thank you for your ongoing support. If you have any questions, please contact your local Sofrana ANL representative.
