It is now the time of year for when marine freight shipments is nearing its seasonal closure.
The Department of Transportation and Works has announced that the shipping season will close this year in mid-November.
The announcement also states that the cut off time for accepting freight for delivery at all terminals of the Labrador Marine Service between Lewisporte and all points north to Nain is 4:30pm, Friday, November 12.
Beyond this date, deliveries cannot be guaranteed and freight will only be accepted if space is available.
So as of today, if anyone needs to ship anything out has just a week and couple days to do so.
