Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A (MSC) wishes to advise that New Zealand Authorities has denied the ANL Warragul 554N entering New Zealand territory.
Due to the quarantine failure by an Australian Bogong Moth infestation on the vessel, New Zealand Authorities has denied the ANL Warragul 554N entering New Zealand territory. The vessel is returning to Sydney, where a moth eradication programme will be undertaken by the Australian authorities.
The vessel is scheduled to arrive in Sydney on 26th October 10:00am, and will berth at a lay berth where no container operations will be available. Vessel will then continue its voyage to New Zealand once clearance from DAWR is provided.

All revised booking confirmations will be sent out once changes are completed by our regional teams.
