ONE’s Madrid Bridge lost at least 30 containers overboard
The 2018-built container ship Madrid Bridge, which suffered a container collapse on 7 January in the North Atlantic Ocean, has lost at least 30 boxes overboard.
“It is not currently clear how extensive the collapse of stow is but it is reported that the vessel lost at least 30 containers overboard,” reported cargo claims specialist, WK Webster, which added that recovery issues will arise in respect of any cargo lost overboard and damage sustained by cargo stowed to other containers involved in the collapse of stow but remaining onboard the vessel.
“We are currently seeking to establish the extent of the losses overboard and damage to cargo,” added WK Webster.
Ocean Network Express (ONE)-operated vessel, which was deployed on the East Coast 4 (EC4) service of THE Alliance, experienced the container collapse, while it was off New York, awaiting arrival at its scheduled berth on 17 January 2022.
