Alaska Vessel Delay – Matson Tacoma 120N – 3rd Update [Anchorage - 09.15.2019]


September 15th, 2019

Dear Span Alaska Customer,

Reserve vessel Lihue (LHE 264N), sailing in lieu of Matson Tacoma, completed repairs and the vessel departed Tacoma on Friday morning. LHE264N is currently expected to arrive Anchorage on Tuesday, September 17.

Span secured bookings on TOTE and moved multiple containers on the Wednesday September 11 departure that will arrive in Anchorage on Sunday, September 15th. These shipments and the additional shipments put over the road will be available for deliver on Monday.

Lihue (LHE264N) will be worked on Wednesday, September 18 after the Matson Kodiak (MKD124N) which is scheduled for on-time pro forma arrival on Tuesday morning, September 17. Kodiak cargo that was booked to LHE264N was relayed to Matson Kodiak (MKD124N) and will be arriving in Kodiak on Wednesday, September 18. We anticipate delivering the Lihue (LHE264N) cargo on Thursday and Friday, completing delivery of both ships by the end of the week.

LHE264S will bypass Kodiak and return directly to Tacoma following cargo operations.
