No plans for another ship

ONE of the country's largest shipping companies Patterson Brothers Shipping Company Ltd (PBSCL) says operations in 2017 are looking up.

PBSCL media liaison David Patterson said even though business was slow at this time of the year, 2017 was shaping up to be a wonderful year.

One of the highlights of the company this year has been the restart of the Ellington to Nabouwalu route.

"Our company currently provides three return sailings between Ellington and Nabouwalu and could easily increase to 12 return sailings if there is an increase in demand," he said.

Plans are in the pipeline for further development in the coming years, however, Mr Patterson said they could not divulge anything at present.

"At this time, there is no need to import another ship.

"We are only operating at 40 per cent load factor on some routes and 10 per cent load factor on other routes."
