Public Advisory: MV Astron to Assist Labrador Freight Deliveries

The Department of Transportation and Works advises that the MV Astron will assist the MV Dutch Runner to help clear freight before the end of the Labrador North Coast shipping season.

The MV Astron is currently being loaded at Lewisporte and is scheduled to depart once loading is complete.

The vessel will complete two freight delivery cycles to ports north to Nain, with the option of a third cycle should freight volume warrant, in order to clear all freight before the end of the shipping season.

Information on schedules and bookings can be obtained by phoning CAI Nunatsiavut Marine Inc. at 1-877-896-7075 within Canada or 1-506-858-9963 internationally, or by visiting www.labradorferry.ca.
