The latest update has been released on progress of the Mitsui Osk Line (MOL) car carriers; Cougar Ace, Courageous Ace and Primrose Ace.
The Cougar Ace has completed full vessel operations in Auckland and Tauranga and has departed New Zealand.
Primrose Ace and Courageous Ace
Due to delays inbound and in Auckland, both the Primrose Ace and the Courageous Ace will now have identical coastal schedules.
To maximise berth windows on the New Zealand coast it has been decided that all cargo for Wellington, Lyttelton and Nelson on the Primrose Ace and all cargo that was to load into the Primrose Ace in Auckland has been transferred to the Courageous Ace.
This includes cargo ex the Meridian Ace and Cougar Ace.
Updated schedule for the Courageous Ace is below.
