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.
