Update on freight arrangements

Many in the community would have received the Trade Notice from Transam Argosy advising that the Capitaine Wallis had been removed from shipping schedules, and the Southern Tiare would be utilised for the November and December voyages.

Discussions have commenced between my office, the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development, the Norfolk Island Regional Council, Transam Argosy and Burnt Pine Travel to identify potential contingencies to mitigate reduced sea freight services and/or capacity.

My office will keep the community informed. In the interim, we ask for your patience and should you require any urgent assistance, please contact the Office of the Administrator by email: office.administrator@infrastructure.gov.au.
