Constantinos P returns
Container ship Constantinos P returned to Northport for the third time this evening and is expected to depart in the morning of Wednesday 19 May. There are 907 containers to be discharged, with 103 empty containers to backload (1,501 TEU total exchange).
As with previous calls, the discharge process will need to be complete before container dispatch can start. At this stage we expect to be able to start dispatching boxes at 0600hrs on Thursday 20 May. We've advised trucking companies that we will not be open for dispatch on the weekend of 22-23 May.
We expect to be able to complete the dispatch operation within six working days and are asking for industry cooperation to help us do so. We are asking firms not to book loading slots until they can see on our website that the containers they wish to collect are fully cleared for dispatch, to ensure that trucks are present for the slots they are booked for, and to avoid overloading our small administrative team with requests for information that is available on the our website or in the operational advisory we release by email at regular intervals.
