Goundar Shipping Limited a local inter-island shipping company claims it never overloads passengers.

Ship Manager Inoke Ratotodro says people get mixed-up with overloading and overcrowding.

Ratotodro says seats on the vessels are often empty, however, passengers prefer to lie down when they should be sitting and therefore, this comes across as overcrowding.

This statement comes after a number of complaints surfaced during the festive season, where some customers were unable to board the vessel due to lack of space.

He says they are working with relevant stakeholders to address this issue.

“We are working closely with the Fiji Ports Corporation here in Suva for the control of passengers entering into the jetty. From the jetty to the ship it is our responsibility and we are doing our best together with MSAF officials as soon as they board the ship.”

Ratotodro says they are carrying out these measures as a protocol as passenger safety is paramount.
