Chatham Island Shipping's "Southern Tiare" left Napier on 18 February and is heading for Lautoka Fiji. Her next voyage to the Chatham Islands is being undertaken by Norfolk Guardian. Anyone know why this is happening?

Here is the article on the "Tokyo Car".

www.stuff.co.nz/business/farming/agribusiness/101400202/stink-bug-infestation-found-on-a-second-ship-carrying-cars-from-japan

The next vessel "Sepang Express" looks to be also turned away. She arrived 12 February and is awaiting biosecurity clearance. I don't think she will be cleared, as she is due to sail at midday today, not having worked.

This will be the third car carrier to be turned away.

It's confirmed that Sepang Express has been denied permission to unload and will sail at 3.30pm today for ?.

The Sepang Express is now heading for Brisbane.

The AIS for Courageous Ace has now changed from Brisbane to "destination port unknown", so she must not be welcome in Australia either.

AIS is now showing destination as Jakarta.

Marine Traffic now have AIS as back to Brisbane, due 23 February. She must either be going to steam around for a while or anchor, as she is just off the Brisbane coast.

It looks like the "Tokyo Car" is the next vehicles carrier to be turned away from Ports of Auckland. She arrived at 7am on 11 February and didn't work that day. This morning they lined up all the coastal vehicles on the wharf ready for loading, but the ramp wasn't lowered. It's now 1.30pm and these vehicles have been placed back where they were taken from. She is now down to sail at 5pm to parts unknown, maybe back to Australia. Cry

The Courageous Ace has sailed from Auckland "For Orders" with an ETA of 26 February. She did not reload the large earthmoving equiptment, which is now in the middle of the wharf and covered with black tarpaulins. They are to be fumigated by a biosecurity company.

The vehicles carrier "Courageous Ace" arrived in Auckland on the morning of 6 February and started discharging cargo. By the afternoon her ramp was up and there was a notification that the vessel was to be fumigated. At 3pm today, 9 February, the ramp was down again and she started reloading the vehicles that had previously been discharged.
Does this mean that the entire shipment had been rejected by MAF and she is haeding back to Japan?
She was also due to load coastal vehicles and call at Tauranga, Wellington, Lyttelton and Nelson.
Anyone in the Port or Shipping industry know what is going on?
She is now down to sail at midday on 10 February. Everything, both second hand and new is going back. Just watching all the new trucks and buses being reloaded......very strange.

The Foochow IMO 9690901 has arrived in Auckland from Suva and South East Asia. She is discharging steel and containers, so it would appear that she is a fill in vessel for the South East Asia schedule following the sale of the Ngankin. A replacement for the Ngankin has not yet been announced, but the Foochow , as a bulk carrier,  would be a little large for this run. Smiley
