The Mitsui Osk Line (MOL) vessel Cougar Ace will arrive in Auckland today.
Its cargo is classed as ‘high risk’ and subject to the Ministry for Primary Industry’s (MPI) vessel surveillance, meaning the ship will be inspected, fogged and then inspected again.
The Cougar Ace will only call in to Auckland and Tauranga. It will not be calling in at Wellington, Lyttelton and Nelson, as per the initial schedule.
Units for these destinations will be transhipped onto the MOL ship Primrose Ace.
The current schedule for Primrose Ace is as follows:
Auckland 7th April
Wellington 10th April
Lyttelton 11th April
Nelson 12th April
