New Ship for Lyttelton

Soon to be a frequent visitor to the port of Lyttelton, the largest New Zealand operated cargo ship Spirit of Endurance will arrive at Auckland on Sunday, the 9th of November, 2008 on her maiden voyage from China. 

With a service speed of 17 knots and a gross tonnage of 7,464 tonnes, the 130 metre vessel will load about a thousand containers for Lyttelton and Port Chalmers.

With the loss of 8 wharfie jobs & several office staff, and the Wellington-Christchurch roll-on, roll-off freight service...

But one of the first steps in the hub-spoke port system being pushed by international shipping co's as part of port "rationalization" to get their costs down.
