Orkney and Shetland Container Freight Schedule Change

Streamline Shipping Group has given notice of a change to its sailing schedule for the Northern Isles container service for the week commencing 16 April.

For one week only the mid-week calls into Orkney and Shetland will be reversed, with the vessel calling at Lerwick on Wednesday 18 April and Kirkwall on Thursday 19 April, whereas the normal schedule has the Orkney freight call on the Wednesday and Shetland on Thursday.

Operations Director Phil Bremner said, 'we have a couple of special lifts for Shetland this week which are to a degree time sensitive and as such we felt it prudent to sail directly for Lerwick from Aberdeen this week, calling at Kirkwall on the southbound return.' Customers are advised that the schedule will return to normal from the coming weekend.
