News day / The vessel which was initially expected to arrive in Trinidad on Sunday night was delayed briefly in the Panama Canal Sinanan told Newsday yesterday. Barring weather challenges, the vessel, which had already left the Panama Canal, was on schedule to arrive last night, he said. The vessel is expected to make a run to Tobago even before it begins its service. Sinanan said that the cargo service will ease the inconvenience of truckers who had to use the air bridge to get to Tobago while their vehicles went by sea.

“Truckers can expect relief,” he said.

The Cabo Star, he said, will take over the services that the Trinity Transporter and the Atlantic Provider, had been providing.

The situation worsened when the T&T Spirit, one of the passenger boats that plied the route, was put in dry dock for repairs.

The vessels are being leased from Bridgemans Services Group of Vancouver, Canada. The Cabo Star is being leased at a daily cost of US$22,500 (TT$157,500) and the Ocean Flower for US$26,500 (TT$185,500).
