Vessel Change Notification
Port Vila Chief to Vanuatu Chief

Dear Valued Customer:

Please be advised Westwood's charter of the 'PORT VILA CHIEF' will conclude during the 007W voyage upon arrival to Busan, Korea on February 1, 2024.

The remaining westbound cargo will be discharged in Busan and transshipped to the newly on-hired 'VANUATU CHIEF'. The VANUATU CHIEF 001E will resume the PORT VILA CHIEF 007W planned port rotation and discharge bills of lading at their respective port of discharge.

The VANUATU CHIEF 001E will replace the PORT VILA CHIEF 007E starting in Busan and complete the standard eastbound rotation with the same scheduled ports of call.

The 'VANUATU CHIEF' will replace the 'PORT VILA CHIEF' going forward in the Service 2 port rotation. There will be no disruption to port schedule.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding. Any additional changes to vessel ETAs will be communicated accordingly.

Please contact your sales manager or customer service team with questions for imports at 1-800-621-4371 or for exports at 1-800-220-9752.

Thank you for your support of Westwood Shipping Lines.
