ANL - APX Service and SOFRANA WestPac Service Notice - Jan 2018
15th January 2018
Notice to Clients
ANL “APX Service” and SOFRANA ANL “WestPac Service”
Following the acquisition of a majority shareholding in SOFRANA Unilines by ANL, we have undertaken a review of our respective services to rationally and efficiently cover the Papua New Guinea trade.
Beyond agency changes in both Australia and Papua New Guinea which have already been announced, we are currently fine-tuning the service framework which will ensure that the capacity available is aligned to the trade requirements and that the new service arrangements meet both long-term sustainability and our respective clients’ expectations.
In the meantime, the ANL Kokoda Trader will be redelivered to its Owners upon completion of discharge in Brisbane on 22nd January 2018.
While all ANL bookings will be received at DPW Brisbane and SOFRANA ANL bookings will be received at Qube AAT:
• All cargo currently booked by ANL on the ANL Kokoda Trader V 0118N (eta Brisbane 22/01) will be transferred to the Sofrana Surville V 238, ETA Brisbane 23/01.
• All cargo currently booked by ANL on the ANL Kokoda Trader V 0218N (eta Brisbane 08/02) will be transferred to the Sofrana Tourville V 216, ETA Brisbane 05/02.
• All bookings on subsequent voyages of the ANL Kokoda Trader will be transferred to the corresponding SOFRANA ANL vessel and shipments will be made under a SOFRANA ANL bill of lading. Our Customer Service team will contact all booking parties and revised booking confirmations will be issued.
Going forward, the East Coast Australia / New Zealand trade to Papua New Guinea will be operated solely by SOFRANA ANL. Joining forces will enable us to combine our regional expertise and our tailored approach with the added value derived from the wider scale of the CMA CGM Group.
Further service announcements on the new service structure will be made by SOFRANA ANL shortly, and until then, please continue to book and work with your current contacts at ANL or SOFRANA ANL.
ANL and SOFRANA ANL wish to thank all valued clients for their loyal support.
