Extra sailings to bring freight to Island


Extra freight capacity is being provided by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company over the next 24 hours.

The freighter MV Arrow will run a return trip between the Isle of Man and Heysham to ensure goods are brought to the island after poor weather earlier this week led to the cancellation of a number of sailings.

Chief Executive Mark Woodward explained: ‘We have, of course, been in close contact with our freight customers over the last few days.

‘The MV Arrow provides ideal back-up capability and an extra degree of support which will allow us to catch up on bringing freight across to the island following the recent disruption to our services.’
