Goundar Shipping Acting Director, Indra Goundar says they will only consider core staff from Sunday until further notice.
“We are having a meeting with the manager of the company where we will do what other companies are doing, like Fiji Airways laid off so many people, So we will only take essential service workers only to run our cargo shipment.”
Goundar says they will continue with cargo shipping weekly and their last passenger ship will be sailing tomorrow.
