Unusual sight in Auckland today, was the arrival of the coastal container vessel "Spirit of Canterbury", and she was FULL coming north from the South Island. No sign of any below water line red painted hull. Can this be a resurgence of coastal shipping? I hope so.... Smiley

Does anyone know if the "Rangatira", laid up at Timaru has been sold?

CMA CGM have changed their schedule for their planned new weekly service but itís a little confusing

One their website under liner services they list "Operated Vessels" on the PAD Service

These include the following new vessels:

Calais Trader
CMA CGM Alabama
CMA CGM Pointe Marin
CMA CGM L'Etoile

However on the actual schedule itself, none of the above are listed and instead we see the following:

Alexander R
Lise R
Kim N
Naissane A
Eliana A

I can't find any record of any of the above

Does anyone have any further information on this?

Regards

Strange indeed.

CMA CGM Alabama has been scrapped as Conti Wellington

CMA CGM L'Etoile has been renamed CMA CGM Letoile

Calais Trader is currently trading to Africa and is in Lagos.

CMA CGM Pointe Marin is currently trading as "Songa Antofagasta"

So I'm not sure if they know either.

New build Polar Ecuador IMO 9786774 is doing one round voyage on the Northern Star schedule for Maersk Jabal, which I presume will be drydocked in Singapore.

I checked the Marfret website and they show Alexander R, Lise R, Kim N, Naissane A and Eliana A

This probably makes a bit more sense as some of the vessels mentioned on the other list no longer exist

Some companies rather than putting TBN when they havenít fixed a ship put a shipping type name as shippers will tend to book if there is a Ďnameí associated with the particular voyage. Then, when a ship is fixed all bookings are transferred. It is widely thought that shippers tend to look elsewhere when confronted with a TBN  and no one out there wants to lose any bookings to a competitor !

The replacement for the JPO Vela on the ANZEX Service will be the Galicia D. There was a blank sailing after the JPO Vela was withdrawn and this will be followed by the Galicia D. She did a couple of voyages as Hammonia Galicia

Stephen,

There is the MP the Brady ( in Melbourne at present and the former ANL Woomera )
MP the Gronk ( ex Juliette Rickmers)
MP the Edelman ( ex ANL Werribee)
MP the Belichick ( ex unknown yet )

All are named after 2017 Super Bowl winners the New England Patriots
Where Brady is the quarterback, Edelman the wide receiver, Gronkowski the tight end
And Belichick is the coach.

It seems Bertram Rickmers has found some new US investors( with obvious NFL leanings ) through a fund manager called Invesco
Even though he has lost his pet Rickmers

All four investment vehicles are registered in Frankfurt
