May 09 2024 Print This Article

Maersk is pleased to announce the introduction of an upgraded service offering to support the supply chain and logistics requirements covering New Zealand and the Islands.

Commencing from the 17th May (ETA Tauranga) the new NZPAC network will offer improved service frequency with a fixed day, weekly service from New Zealand (Tauranga, Auckland) to Fiji (Suva, Lautoka) and Samoa (Apia). The upgraded service will also provide fortnightly coverage through to American Samoa (Pago Pago) and Tonga (Nuku’alofa).

The first voyage on the NZPAC service will be PFL MATAI 004N with the network also to include the following vessels: CAPITAINE TASMAN and CAPITAINE TUPAIA.

As part of this network upgrade, the current Fiji Express service will be discontinued with the last voyage as NPDL TAHITI 007.

-  Shipments currently planned for NPDL TAHITI 007 will remain unchanged.

-  Ex-New Zealand shipments for subsequent Fiji Express sailings will be replanned to the new NZPAC service.

-  Ex-Fiji and Pacific Islands shipments will be transferred to the earliest available NZPAC voyage following the implementation of the new scheduling.
