The ideal one to load for arrival by early June would be POLYNESIA v518S which is leaving on May 09th.
Deadline for cargo dropoff would be May 02nd and would give us time to clear customs.
Upon arrival in French Polynesia, our custom broker TRANSIT SAT NUI will be handling the custom clearance process and delivery. Please make sure to have all the invoices ready when dropping off the goods.
Please note that all ship spares are free of tax as they are considered transhipment and there are only clearance charges to pay. For all consumables, they will have to pay full custom duties.
