Cosco Shipping are starting a new shipping service called "Brisbane Auckland Express" (BAE).

They will be using the "Kalliroe" IMO 9454357 and the schedule will be Shekou-Hong Kong-Brisbane-Auckland-Shekou.

She has a capacity of 1740 teu.

Also P&O Australia ships:
Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria are now anchored off Cyprus.
Pacific Explorer is in Singapore.

Golden Princess has arrived in Singapore ahead of drydocking and renaming as Pacific Adventure.

The fatality last week on Constantinos P severely disrupting operations is one factor affecting Auckland, and strike-stricken ships crossing from Australia another. Typhoon season in Asia would possibly be another delaying arrivals, so arriving off-window at the moment will most likely have dire consequences.

It's getting quite serious.
The ANL Emora has been working at a general berth. She arrived 7th Sept. and is to leave on 10th. However there has been no work on her all last night and today. Don't know why that is.

The Brotonne Bridge arrived at anchor 9th Sept and is due to berth 13th, and leave 14th.

The CSL Atlantic is at anchor 9th Sept, berthing 11th and sailing 14th.

I can't see that the shipping companies will be very happy with these delays as it must have a knock effect for slots at other ports.

MSC have been advertising quite a few vessels on their schedules recently, only to replace them a few days later.

They are now showing the Wieland (IMO 9654464) joining the Capricorn Service.

ANL EMORA has had two shoreside mobile cranes alongside and yesterday they removed the forward crane jib.
She's due to move to Fergusson later today and sail tomorrow after a week in port.

She's due to move to Fergusson later today and sail tomorrow after a week in port.

Today they also removed the crane cab structure and put a tarpaulan over the remaining crane stem. She will be unloading the remaining containers in the forward holds at Fergusson and then sailing to Tauranga, omitting Nelson, Lyttelton and Wellington. All her export containers will be loaded on the Hansa Freyburg. The following week the Hansa Offenburg will also do it's container exchange at Bledisloe Wharf. Nice to see container ships back at Bledisloe Wharf again.

Can anyone confirm if the Athens Glory (6492TEU's) is the biggest containership to call in Auckland in capacity & length to date?

The fully laden log carrier Funing which grounded off Tauranga 6.7 has finally left the port exactly 2 months after the incident. The Funing left the port 6.9 under tow and after a brief time anchored off Auckland, resumed her voyage 12.9 in tow of tug Skandi Emerald bound for Singapore where ETA 12.10.She reportedly lost power at the harbour entrance and drifted to the edge of the shipping channel, tangling a marker buoy and the stern grounding on a sandbank. This caused shipping delays until she was able to be moved to deeper water. Later she re-berthed now obviously to wait for her tow to arrive, during which time work was done on her rudder and propeller. The master and chief engineer were later convicted for not advising the departure pilot of engine issues and not ensuring the engine was in working order - court report:

Safmarine Bayete (IMO 9355355) is to replace Maersk Innoshima on the OC1/TRIDENT Service. It will be interesting to see if Maersk will rename their Safmarine branded vessels once the brand ceases to operate.

What is going on with Ports of Auckland? ANL Warrnambool arrived at anchor on 16th September, she not expected to berth until 6am 22 September. That's 6 days at anchor. How can she keep to schedule with that sort of delay?

When you do a schedule search on the MSC website, it only shows the "New Kiwi Express" vessels. Those vessels are also different from the ones previously listed. There are no forward schedules available for the Capricorn service. Is this a website glitch, or is there a change coming?

It appears that MSC are consolidating the Capricorn and New Kiwi Express Services into the one service.

It looks like the new schedule will be Auckland-Wellington-Nelson-Bluff-Lyttelton-Napier-Tauranga.  The first vessel on the new schedule will be MSC Alabama due Auckland 15 October.

It appears that Pacifica Shipping have decided to add Marsden Point to the coastal schedule rather than utilising Matson's Island traders. The Moana Chief will call Marsden Point after Nelson and then head to Tauranga and Auckland before going south to Lyttelton.
