Early Starts for Fourth Quarter


September 17, 2012

To:  All TOTE Valued Customers and Carriers

Subject:          Notice of Planned Early Discharge Operations in Anchorage in 2012

In order for you to better plan your operations in Alaska, we would like to update you on the plan for “early starts” in Anchorage.
Below we have listed the dates for these early starts.  We will update the dates each quarter and send out a reminder.  The dates will also be noted on our sailing schedules.
The voyages and dates for the schedule changes in the fourth quarter of 2012 are:

NB Voyage                          Anchorage Arrival           

12167                                    10/21/2012         Sunday

12179                                    11/11/2012         Sunday

12187                                    11/25/2012         Sunday

12193                                    12/09/2012         Sunday

The main benefit of this change is that northbound cargo is going to be available earlier in the day as the vessel will be done discharging mid morning instead of early afternoon. The trailer gate in Anchorage will open at 7:00 AM, one hour earlier than normal.

Please coordinate with Anchorage Customer Service to find out the exact details of when your cargo will be available for delivery.

On each day listed above, the cargo cut off for southbound loads will also be one hour earlier, at 9:00 AM.  Over sized cargo and Hazardous cargo should be into TOTE by COB the previous business day. 
We appreciate the partnership we enjoy with all of you and your understanding of these changes.

Should you have any questions regarding the above, please contact your sales representative or TOTE Customer Service at (800) 426-0074. Current sailing schedules are always available for your convenience here.  We thank you again for your continued business support this year.
