Madrid Bridge to berth in Charleston
The 13,900 TEU container ship Madrid Bridge, which suffered a container collapse in the North Atlantic Ocean on 7 January, is now heading to Charleston, to berth in Hugh K. Leatherman Terminal.
Ocean Network Express (ONE)-operated new panamax vessel, serving on THE Alliance’s East Coast 4 (EC4) service, is expected to arrive in the US port on 23 January, according to data from the ship tracker Marine Traffic.
The 2018-built boxship, which lost a large amount of container during its transit to the Port of New York, will berth in Charleston upon completing the necessary inspection and assessment of the vessel condition, according to a statement.
“The plan is to discharge all damaged units and Charleston imports during the vessel’s call in
Charleston, subject to prevailing conditions,” explained the Singapore-based liner operator.
