Shippers Notice – Port Issues Dominica

PORT ISSUES DOMINICA

We regret to advise, and until further notice, Geest Line will be calling Roseau Dominica monthly for delivery and discharge of cargoes. Geest Line will continue to call fortnightly for container repatriation (port congestion issues) but only one vessel per month will be used for import cargoes to Dominica.

This decision has been made due to service issues at the port. On Monday the 15th October Geest Line was instructed to vacate the berth by DASPA even though vessel had not completed operations/discharge. This has not only added huge expense to Geest Line but most importantly delayed our customer’s cargoes that will remain on board for over a month. The current situation is no longer acceptable but will be reviewed once the port congestion issues are resolved.

This Dominican Port change will take effect as per attached sailing schedule from voyage:

Vessel:       Luzon Strait
Voyage:     GL18046
