The Al Messilah in port at Fremantle last year. It is being utilised by Rural Export and Trading WA to access the WA and South African live sheep markets.The vessel has a five week turnaround time from leaving Fremantle to returning and as the only vessel the company is using to access the trade in WA it has reduced the number of sheep exported dramatically to its lowest level in many years.
