Matson updated their vessel status on 11/7. Below is their notice to us:
As we reported, Matson Consumer 027N returned to Tacoma last night where we were able to continue with vessel repairs. We anticipate all repairs and testing to be completed tonight with a planned 0800 Tacoma departure.
At this time we anticipate a 1700 cargo operations start in Anchorage on Friday, 11/11, with cargo available at 1900. The gatehouse will be open all day Friday, and as needed Friday night and Saturday to accommodate customer needs. Our Anchorage team will coordinate closely with customers to assure cargo is delivered as quickly as possible upon discharge.
Please be reminded that Matson Consumer will bypass Kodiak and Dutch Harbor and we will relay cargo to the next available vessel. Kodiak cargo will be relayed to MKD028S on Sunday, 11/13, and Dutch Harbor cargo to MTC025S on Tuesday, 11/15.
Matson has notified us of a schedule change. Please see their notification below:
