The Wavecrest Weekly - No 4

It's been another hectic week.

The Greenpeace vessel Esperanza sailed from the port of Fowey in Cornwall after taking on stores, technical equipment and new crew members for her next campaign mission in the Atlantic.

Later this week another Greenpeace vessel the Arctic Sunrise will be making a brief call at Falmouth, Cornwall to embark her helicopter and take on stores. This vessel is usually based around North America and hasn't called in the UK for a number of years.

Once again we have been asked to arrange the shipment of a motorbike. This one is going to Singapore and will need to be picked up from Portsmouth and export packed.

We are being kept busy with export removal shipments. This week we have loaded containers at our Gravesend warehouse for Lanzarote in the Canary Islands and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Government of Zimbabwe will be introducing a maximum five year age limit on imported used vehicles with effect from the 1st July 2011. As a result we are receiving a lot of enquiries and bookings for second hand cars, trucks, buses and other commercial vehicles to transit ports such as Walvis Bay, Namibia, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and Durban, South Africa.

Please call us on 01474 331146 for rates and sailing information.

More news next week.
