Due to adverse weather conditions which is expected to delay Polaris vessel NICOLAI MAERSK enroute to Melbourne, we wish to inform you that NICOLAI MAERSK 327E/328W will omit Auckland to minimise any further Polaris schedule disruption and to allow for schedule recovery.

The contingency plan for affected cargo will be as follows:

  • Exports currently booked for NICOLAI MAERSK 327E and loading/transhipping at Melbourne for Auckland will load MAERSK RUBICON 327N for direct Auckland discharge.
  • Exports currently booked for NICOLAI MAERSK 328W and loading/transhipping at Auckland will have the following routing options:
    • For cargo with destination as Fremantle will load DEBUSSY 323S to tranship at Sydney to MAERSK SEOUL 329N.
    • For cargo with destination Nelson and Timaru will load TRIESTE TRADER 330W.

We are working with the respective ports to update the forward schedule along with cut-off’s, which will be published on their respective websites.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause. Should you have any questions please contact our Customer Experience Team via our Live Chat channel.

We thank you in advance for your understanding, along with your continued support in trusting Maersk as your supply chain partner.
