You will certainly have noticed the current delays of vessels employed in our AL5 service.
Despite of various recovery measures such as port omissions, speed-up, and rotation changes we unfortunately did not succeed to bring the service back on schedule since new delays have jeopardized those efforts.
Ongoing adverse weather on the Atlantic is preventing us to do the necessary speed-up and even forces us to reduce the speed for safety reasons. In addition, port congestions caused by weather related port closures and labor shortages have caused additional delays.
In order to recover the AL5 schedule and bring vessels back into the proforma longterm schedule position we have proactively decided to let all vessels slide by one week as per week 48 MV “NYK Rumina” 053W. All vessels sailing until then will remain in their delayed position with some slight schedule adjustments.
We understand the impact of this situation on your logistics, and we very much regret the inconveniences this may have caused to your business.
