Report

------------------UPDATE 2-------------------

19 July 2022

* It is now reported by CMA CGM that the container vessel, APL VANDA experienced a collapse of a container stack whilst the vessel was navigating off Djibouti on 3 July 2022.

* 55 containers are reported to have been lost overboard and more containers in the proximity of the collapsed stack are likely to have been damaged as a result of the incident.

* The vessel later moved to Djibouti under its own power to discharge damaged containers. Once the damaged containers are discharged the vessel will resume its intended voyage. There is currently no departure date for the vessel.

* It is possible that Recovery issues may arise as a result of loss or damage to cargo or in respect of claims for delay and deterioration of temperature sensitive and time sensitive cargo as a consequence of the interruption of the vessel's schedule.

* We are already instructed by Cargo Insurers, and we are well placed to assist you if you are concerned with any cargo stowed on board the vessel.

* We recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any affected cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.

 

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

14 July 2022

* We have received further information concerning the incident on board APL VANDA from which we understand that an unknown number of containers were lost overboard from the vessel on/or about 3 July 2022.

* We are presently seeking to verify the severity of the incident.

* It is possible that Recovery issues may arise as a result of this incident in respect of the loss of containers overboard and physical damage to cargo stowed to other containers that may have sustained damage but which remain on board the vessel.

* It is reported that CMA CGM intend to omit the vessel's scheduled call at Southampton and instead tranship cargo destined for Southampton at Tanger- Mediterranean Port for on-carriage by the next available vessel.

* Any amendment to the vessel's schedule as a result of the incident may result in claims for delay and deterioration of temperature sensitive and time sensitive cargo.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
