Maersk’s Panamax vessel suffers container loss in North Pacific
The 4,526 TEU Dyros has reportedly lost a large number of containers in the North Pacific, southeast of Kamchatka in Russia, while it was en route from the port of Yantian to Seattle.
“We have received reports that container ship, Dyros, experienced a loss overboard of an unspecified number of containers in poor weather whilst transiting the North Pacific Ocean, eastbound towards Seattle, on 21 March 2022,” said claims consultant WK Webster in its latest update.
After the loss of boxes, the Panamax container ship, which is owned by Costamare and chartered by Maersk, has continued its voyage with a scheduled estimated time of arrival (ETA) at Seattle on 27 March 2022.
The full extent of the loss of cargo overboard and of any accompanying physical damage to containers remaining onboard the vessel may not become clear until the vessel arrives at Seattle, according to WK Webster, which said, “We are therefore making arrangements to ascertain the extent of losses on board the vessel upon the vessel’s arrival there and we have cargo surveyors on hand to arrange inspection of any damaged cargo when access to that cargo is permitted.”
