Ingrid Gorthon - update

Following up on my piece about Rederi AB Transatlantic cutting out its transatlantic service:

Ingrid Gorton was due in San Juan Puerto Rico January 27-28, to complete its obligations with RABT, so will no longer be sailing under their direction.

It appears that she has now been renamed Forest Costa Rica and on her way to Panama City. Owners Lemissoler Shipping have had her under the Cypriot flag ever since taking her over from RABT and chartering her back.

This may mean that Transfigher may be RABT's only ship operating in North America. As of today RABT have not posted a new shipping schedule since the end of January.

Here's the place to check if you are interested:
