Oceanex skips Corner Brook

1.Oceanex Sanderling arriving this morning for pier 41, with the tug Atlantic Larch to assist, and will move this afternoon to Autoport to load cars. It will sail this evening, and will be back in Halifax Friday for its second trip.

Oceanex has decided to skip the port of Corner Brook for the time being. Their Halifax service used to be Halifax/ St.John's/ Corner Brook/ Halifax. Due to a lack of cargo offering in Corner Brook, and increased traffic out of Halifax bound for St.John's Oceanex recently adjusted their schedule to allow two sailings each week between Halifax and St.John's for Oceanex Sanderling.

Reports indicate that this may be a temporary measure, and that calls will be made in Corner Brook if cargo warrants. For the near future at least, Corner Brook cargo will be trucked to and from St.John's.

Oceanex's St.Lawrence service, using Cabot and Oceanex Avalon will continue to run between Montreal and St.John's.
