R class shipping details - just in case.
Mindful of concern being expressed over the concentration of all the R class eggs in one container basket so to speak and the possibility of losing the container overboard in a typhoon, the Eureka staff in Hong Kong investigated the possibility of dividing the shipment in two and arranging alternative shipping for the second half of the cargo.
Shipping is pretty tight out of China at the moment but the Eureka staff eventually located possible cargo space and is investigating the economics of such a course of action. Shipping time may be a little bit longer but the increased safety arising from dividing the cargo in two would provide increased certainty and peace of mind.
For those who are interested a photo of the alternative vessel being considered can be found at:
