Attn: customers with cargo onboard MAERSK EINDHOVEN voyage 106S
Maersk has informed us that the container ship MAERSK EINDHOVEN, deployed on our Pearl service, faced an engine stop in heavy weather on 17 February while en route from Xiamen, China, to Los Angeles, USA.
The preliminary advice from the vessel operator suggests that several hundred containers have been lost overboard, although we have not yet been informed whether any MSC customer cargo was impacted. We also have been informed that the crew is reported safe, and the propulsion has been fixed.
Maersk is currently assessing the nearest suitable port options in Asia to berth the vessel and will keep MSC informed of the port location decision and timing.
MSC regrets any inconvenience caused by this incident and we will communicate again in due course as soon as we have updated information to pass on to you from the vessel operator.
