Barenbrug Export Operations Update - May 2019

By Mel Parish


Barenbrug would like to welcome Theresa Wong to our export shipping department.  Theresa joins us following the retirement of Sandy Makins, who will be highly missed.  We are most excited to have Theresa on board.  Theresa brings a wealth of experience in the shipping industry working with various freight forwarders. 


Cleaning of seed and getting on vessels to meet customer deadlines is our priority at the moment.  We haven’t been experiencing any issues with vessel space or equipment availability this time of year. 


Transhipment ports through Asia experienced congestion earlier in the year, causing delays to arrivals mainly in Europe. This seems to have now cleared up.


Most shipping rates have stayed consistent through until next quarter.  


Keeping our records up to date is important, as shipping lines are enforcing consignee details to include companies TAX/VAT number, telephone and email contacts. Please advise us as soon as possible with any changes to contact details.  If you have a preferred Notify Party you would like stated on your Bill of Lading, please email us on the below address and we can update your file.
