Steamship Company Says No Delays On Freight To Islands

gry maritha 2The Steamship Company are encouraging anyone who has been suffering delays with freight orders to get in touch with them.

Radio Scilly has received a number of emails and Facebook messages over the last week from islanders who say courier packages have taken up to ten days to reach the islands after being signed for in Penzance.

However, Commercial Manager Nick Sanders told us there are no capacity issues on the Gry Maritha and freight should be put on the first sailing after it’s delivered.

He says the Steamship Company has no intention of storing items for long periods in Penzance, although it might take a couple of days if a parcel arrives just after the Gry has sailed.

Nick says he’s not aware of anyone contacting the company to complain of delayed orders and he said it’s important that they get in touch, so he can find out exactly where the problem lies.

This could happen after items have arrived on St Mary’s, he says, which is out of the control of the Steamship Company.
