September 19, 2017 - MV Astron to By-pass Makkovik Until Repairs to the Dock are Completed

Nunatsiavut Marine Inc wishes to advise that due to the condition of the Dock in Makkovik that the MV Astron will not be able to dock and will by-pass Makkovik on its way south to Goose Bay. Yesterday the dock was deemed unsafe due to the steel structure protruding from and hanging off the side of the dock. The current state of the dock could result in catastrophic damage to the vessel.
Nunatsiavut Marine is assisting the province with arranging a contractor to perform emergency repairs to the dock which will allow the MV Astron to dock safely. Updates on the progress of the repairs will be provided as information becomes available.

Currently, the MV Northern Ranger is unaffected by the issue and will continue to call the port of Makkovik according to schedule.

September 14, 2017 - Freight Cut-off Deadlines Approaching

Nunatsiavut Marine Inc. (NMI) is reminding commercial customers that the cut-off deadline for commercial contractor shipping is less than one month away. Commercial contractor equipment and materials will need to be at our facilities by October 15.

The guaranteed delivery deadline for all other residential freight and household goods is October 31.

“We will continue to accept items for shipping after these dates based on available space and vessel routing, though delivery of items accepted after these dates cannot be guaranteed,” says NMI General Manager Gary Latimer. “This is a good time for people planning both commercial and other shipments to plan to have their goods at our facilities on time.” 

The north coast freight and passenger service will actually end in December. However, two factors enter into the October freight deadlines. “The weather can be quite unpredictable in the fall, and that can affect the length of the season,” said Latimer. “And because we are heading into winter, residents and commercial operations are bringing in large volumes of freight. It becomes impossible to guarantee delivery if we don’t set deadlines.”

August 25, 2017 - Cut-off Dates for the 2017 North Coast of Labrador Freight Service

Oct 31, 2017 - All Other Residential Freight and Household Goods

Please note that Nunatsiavut Marine will continue to accept freight for shipping to the North Coast based on available space and routing as long as conditions allow. However, delivery of items received after the deadline cannot be guaranteed.
