Lloyd’s Register Fuel Oil Bunkering Analysis and Advisory Service (FOBAS) on Tuesday (2 January) published a bulletin alerting the maritime industry possible disruptions to its sample collection services in countries that observe the Lunar New Year holidays such as Singapore and China:
Due to Lunar New Year holidays, there may be some disruption in collection and transit of samples in several countries across Asia.
In Singapore, our Logistics team will continue to collect samples and dispatch Kits up until 11th February, provided agents offices are open. During Lunar New Year (12th & 13th February) sample collections will only take place at Marina South Pier and West Coast Pier, anticipate things will return to normal on 15th February.
Please note delays in other countries, including China, are expected to extend until 18th February.
FOBAS Samples will continue to assist our clients throughout Lunar New Year, however we anticipate our usual services will be affected during this period, as many Agents’ offices may be closed and delivery networks have limited service.
We would recommend Sample Kit deliveries, please advise Vessels next 3 bunker ports, ETA and full style agent details. FOBAS Samples will then arrange new sample kit dispatch accordingly based on the most convenient location avoiding any affected areas.
Sample collections within these Countries will be handled on a case-by-case basis, FOBAS Samples will make their best efforts to arrange sample collections as normal during the public holidays, however we should anticipate some delays caused by things beyond our control.
