PFL Trade Notice: Tonga Update

Dear Valued Customers,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the good people of Tonga – friends and colleagues alike.

Presently Pacific Forum Line are going through the following actions:

• We have established that our agency personal are safe and well and working on establishing communications
• The port is closed until it can be surveyed to ascertain any damage. We expect that to happen today or tomorrow (Thursday)
• Our container depot (CRS) was inundated, and the clean-up has begun to make it operational. We understand no major damage to machinery
• We are reviewing schedules and will work with government to assist on vessel plans to supply goods
• Our management & trade teams are reviewing what is the most urgent aid cargo, how quickly we can deliver Tonga and what we are going to require from shippers and consignee to ensure cargo is direct exactly where the relief is required

Once above is established we will then be working with all cargo interests to ensure requirements are evaluated and planned accordingly.

Should you have any further questions or queries please contact your Pacific Forum Line representative.
Yours sincerely,

Pacific Forum Line
