"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." -  John Ruskin 1819-1900

Photo of the Week 89: The SPRING R, the first NYK vessel to load containers out of Dutch Harbor

The SPRING R is the first NYK vessel to load containers out of Dutch Harbor under NYK's expansion into that port. There was a brief ceremony on the bridge of the vessel to acknowledge the new route. ALAMAR Dutch Harbor Vessel Manager Dabbie Mateo – lead agent or the SRPING R – was on hand to present a plaque in commemoration of the event. Also in attendance was Capt. Louis Ferrer of NYK, several MATSON employees, individuals from the Harbormaster’s office, and members of the Unalaska City Council. SPRING R departed on the evening of 7/19 with 143 containers of frozen seafood bound for the far east.
