------------------UPDATE-------------------

17 January 2022

* Further to our initial report concerning the collapse of containers stowed on board container carrier, MADRID BRIDGE, it is now understood that approximately 60 containers were lost overboard and a further 80 containers were damaged as a result of the incident, but that additional losses and/or damage may be ascertained after further investigations.

* It is reported that the vessel has now been diverted towards Charleston, USA, missing out scheduled port calls at New York and Savannah, for a detailed assessment of the vessel's condition and to discharge the affected containers.

* Recovery issues will arise in respect of cargo lost overboard and damage sustained to cargo stowed to containers affected by the incident.

* In addition, any delay to the vessel's schedule may adversely affect any temperature sensitive and/or time sensitive cargo.

* We have already been instructed by certain cargo insurers and we may therefore be able to offer certain economies of scale in respect of any third party costs which may be incurred to investigate the cause of the incident.
* We recommend that you contact us if you are concerned with any cargo stowed on board the vessel so that we can immediately take steps to protect your interests.
