Oluf Maersk contained an engine room fire whilst at Panama Canal, however the resulting damage has necessitated full discharge of her cargo that will now be onforwarded by other vessels. She had only just returned to the OC1 service after docking.

It appears from the latest Wallenius Wilhemsen schedule that there will be new port rotations starting in April. The new schedule stating 4 April has yet "TBN" vessels calling Bremerhaven, Zeebrugge, Southampton, Santander, Port Elizabeth, East London, then Fremantle, Melbourne, Port Kembla, Brisbane and then on to Auckland.
I presume this will replace the voyages from North America (Manzanillo) through the Pacific, (Noumea and Papeete) to Auckland and then on to Australia.
This will leave a hole for NZ exporters ex Auckland that ship a large quantity of cargo, (pallets of LVL) to Brisban on these vessels.
