We have received notification of delay to the Navios Unite Voy. 024S loading from ports in Malaysia and Singapore to Australian Ports.
Carriers operating on the vessel have announced the vessel will omit their calls to Brisbane and Sydney, while maintaining its Melbourne call. The carriers are citing technical issues for the omissions, however on investigation we have determined that several containers were washed overboard from the vessel after departing Fremantle.
As of Monday 29 June, the vessel was due to call Melbourne 1 July. The ETA was revised to 3 July late Tuesday/early Wednesday however that date was altered again yesterday afternoon to 12 July before being revised to the 7 July late last night.
The vessel is in Adelaide and was expected to depart yesterday, however news reports indicate the vessel is being inspected by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) resulting in the vessel being held in Adelaide.
Based on the revised ETA to Melbourne, it suggests departure from Adelaide will not occur until at least July.
No carrier, or the vessel operator ANL, have provided any update relating to this incident or delays as a result of AMSA inspections other than it has been held over in Adelaide for “technical reasons”. We will continue to work with vessel operators and other source information and update you on any changes to the current revised ETA of the 7 July in Melbourne.
Sydney and Brisbane cargo will be unloaded from Navios Unite in Adelaide and reload to the CSAV Toconau Voy. 026. We will update ETA into Sydney and Brisbane once the revised schedule for the CSAV Toconau is made available.
