A3 Central Vessel Phase in

27th February 2017

Notice to Shippers
A3 – Central Express
TBN18 V024N Named Balbina V011N

Please be advised that the vessel reflecting as TBN18 V024N on our schedule, due on the Australian Coast 30th March, has been confirmed as the Balbina V011N. The Balbina will phase into service for one voyage only and subsequently phase out again in Shanghai on 20th April.

Consequently, all Ningbo cargo will be transhipped in Shanghai on a yet to be confirmed replacement vessel. Please ensure all Ningbo cargo is PRAd and gated in for Ningbo rather than Shanghai.

Please note that NO DG/OOG/Waste cargo will be accepted for Ningbo as a consequence of the vessel phase out.

Our Customer Service Team will be in contact with booking parties to provide revised booking confirmations accordingly.
