So we have the problem of getting Wilson's Cement containers from Marsden Point to Lyttelton.
I wonder if they will ship it on the Aotearoa Chief. She is also a Swire vessel and Lyttelton has bulk facilities.
Watch this space I suppose.

I think they only have bulk facilities at Lyttelton for Holcim Cement not for Wilsons.

Matuku has been anchored in Tasman Bay since 11 July with no further movements listed for any port.
Kokako continues in service, but even she does spend time at anchor between voyages.

She is due to arrive in Nelson 4 August with ETD of 13 Aug. Berthing at McGlashen Quay - not a usual berth for tankers at this port.

The Matuku is getting a Ballast Water Management system installed. They anchor in Tasman Bay to hide from the weather

The dilemma with Wilson's cement containers shipping from Marsden Point to Lyttelton has been solved.
The coastal container vessel Moana Chief will bring the empty cement containers from Lyttelton to Auckland. Matson's Pacific Island vessels Olomana, Liloa II and Island Chief will discharge empties from the islands in Auckland, load the empty cement containers and head to Marsden Point. There they will discharge empties and load full containers and head back to Auckland. The full containers will then be taken to the container terminal to be loaded on the Moana Chief for Lyttelton.
Job sorted  ;D

Contship Ten ex Frisia Aller IMO 9347982 is due at Marsden Point on 26 August from Noumea to load containers. She will then load in Auckland and head for Sydney. She usually trades for MSC Shipping between Noumea and Sydney, so don't why the diversion to NZ.

After just one voyage, the Brevik Bridge is leaving the Japan Service and the NYK Futago (IMO 9487524) will return in her place.

ANL Wendouree (IMO 9297527) has been renamed Antwerp Bridge.

Does anyone know what is happening at the Ports of Auckland container terminal lately? Most container vessels arriving at the port are spending several days at anchor before they berth. I haven't seen this happen before.

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.
