The Valesasa Transportation Company Limited now wants to serve the Lomaiviti Group.

Company chief executive officer (CEO) Ilaitia Caginavanua yesterday confirmed that they had applied for the franchised route.

He said all the franchise routes had been advertised and they were interested in serving the islands of Gau, Nairai and Batiki in the Lomaiviti Group.

Currently he said the MV Uluinabukelevu continued its voyages to the district of Nabukelevu in the Island of Kadavu.

He said they were serving the Yasayasa Moala – Moala, Matuku and Totoya under the franchise scheme but that had ended.

Mr Cagilevu said the people of Nabukelevu district in Kadavu had purchased the vessel to help in their transportation.

Before he said they had to pay hundreds of dollars from Tavuki jetty to be dropped off at their villages.

Now he said, they no longer travel from Tavuki as they were dropped off at their villages.

On the competition in the shipping industry, he said it was tough but they were surviving.

The district of Nabukelevu is located in Kadavu’s southern district.

It is also known by the name Vanua o Valesasa.

The MV Uluinabukelevu started operations in 2010 specifically to serve the people of Nabukelevu.

He said he hoped they would be given the green light to serve the people of Lomaiviti.
