BRi USA NEWS - Evergreen Box ship Suffers Container Stack Collapse Off Japan


Dear all Valued Customers


Evergreen Marine announced Saturday that the Ever Liberal lost 36 containers over the side in strong winds and heavy seas off Japan.


Evergreen reported that no seafarers were injured in the incident, and none of the lost containers carried dangerous goods.


The Japan Coast Guard was notified so that it could alert shipping to the potential hazard of floating containers.


The firm diverted the vessel to the port of Taipei, about 600 nm to the southwest, in order to offload damaged cargo and assess the damage.


Evergreen said that it is also working to recover lost containers from the sea.


BRi USA is in discussions with Evergreen Marine Shipping and any customers effected by this announcement will be contacted. Please feel free to contact your Customer Solutions Representative, should you have any queries regarding USA News.
