The Port Authority is now down to closely exploring the two options available in deciding on a cargo vessel to be used on a short term basis between Port of Spain and Scarborough.
Last month the Super-fast Galicia which serviced the route left the country.
Since then, stakeholders such as the Truckers and Traders Association have complained that the current vessel being used has reduced accommodation capacity and is taking longer to get to its destination.
They claim the development has resulted in higher costs.
However, Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan told reporters this afternoon that the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago is moving closer to finding a solution.
Minister Sinanan added that challenges facing the inter-island ferry service are also being addressed and another vessel will be sourced to filled the void when the currently vessels undergo maintenance.
