Public Advisory - Revised - End of Northern Ranger Passenger Service and Astron Freight Service

Nunatsiavut Marine would like to advise customers that the MV Astron is expected to depart Lewisporte late this week, weather permitting,  and will call ports north to Nain, then return to Lewisporte, calling ports south as required. This will be the final sailing of the MV Astron for the 2015 shipping season.

The MV Northern Ranger will depart Happy Valley — Goose Bay on Friday November 27th at 10PM, weather permitting, and will sail to Rigolet, Cartwright, and Black Tickle. Passenger service will end upon arrival in Black Tickle. The vessel will then sail to Lewisporte to begin freight runs out of Lewisporte and Goose Bay to the coastal ports, as long as ice conditions allow.

Please be advised that Nunatsiavut Marine is still accepting freight, but will continue to only accept items for shipment that can be handled by the Northern Ranger. Delivery of items accepted after the October 30th deadline cannot be guaranteed. Items such as vehicles or large commercial cargo will not be accepted.

Freight/Cargo Service
The cargo ship will originate in Lewisporte, NL and deliver cargo and goods to Black Tickle, Makkovik, Postville, Hopedale, Natuashish and Nain, and will stop as required in the coastal Labrador communities on its way to 
Rigolet and Goose Bay.  The vessel will then reload in Goose Bay and depart for Rigolet, Makkovik, Postville, Hopedale, Natuashish and Nain and will stop as required in the coastal Labrador communities on its way back to Black Tickle and re-load again in Lewisporte.   Vessel operates based on freight demand.  

Due to the opening of Phase III of the Trans Labrador Highway which connects Goose Bay to Cartwright to Southern Labrador, we cannot accept freight from Lewisporte to Goose Bay or Cartwright and vice-versa.
