Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A (MSC) wishes to advise clients that Wellington Port has advised the port has been partially opened; however, container vessel operations will not be resumed until further notice.
Due to this, Passat Summer FC643A/FC646R will omit Wellington. Import cargo will be discharged at Lyttelton for oncarriage by a following vessel. Export bookings will be transferred to the Penelope FC647R at this stage.
There will be substantial backlog and congestion at Lyttelton and Wellington caused by the temporary closure of Wellington port. We would like to encourage clients who have been affected, to look for alternate options by using other North Island ports.
Our client services teams will be in contact with clients affected by this omit.
We will keep you updated regarding the situation and condition at Wellington Port.
