Maersk Dyros Undergoes Inspections
On 21 March, the 4,578 TEU box ship lost around 90 containers in the North Pacific Ocean due to rough weather conditions.
Approximately another 100 containers were damaged but no crew members were injured.
In a recent customer advisory, Maersk wrote that the ship had been diverted to Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico.
“On 3 April, the ship arrived at Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico, and inspections of the vessel are already underway. The vessel is expected to come alongside on 7 April,” a representative from the Danish shipping line told PTI.
“Once alongside, the vessel will undergo further assessment and we will have more specific details on the extent of damaged containers at the end of this week.
“The discharge operations will also begin once alongside and are expected to take two weeks. The vessel will also need to be assessed for any necessary repairs, which could add additional time at Lazaro Cardenas.”
The vessel was on its way from Yantian, China, to Seattle, USA when the incident occurred.
In other news, recent bottlenecks in Far East Asia have led Maersk to change a number of its shipping schedules.
This was arguably mainly driven by the recent lockdown in Shanghai, China which has recently been extended.
Despite operations at the Port of Shanghai remaining active, Maersk-operated depots and warehouses across the city are remaining closed.
