Shipping season officially begins for the north coast of Labrador today.
According to a public advisory from the Department of Transportation, the Northern Ranger is set to depart Happy Valley-Goose Bay today.
The vessel is scheduled to hit all north coast ports for the first time this week.
Labrador Marine Inc. began accepting freight bound for the north coast on June 29.
The MV Astron resumed its regular schedule on Friday.
Manager of the Northern Store in Nain, Boyd Manuel, couldn’t be happier with the departure.
He says the store has been running low on a number of items.
Manuels adds that he isn’t aware if there is any freight on board the vessel for the Northern store.
