CMA CGM vessel suffers container collapse on Singapore-Suez voyage

APL Vanda VF

Some 55 containers were lost overboard when a CMA CGM vessel faced inclement weather on a Singapore to Suez leg of its route.

CMA CGM’s APL Vanda lost the containers from a single bay on 3 July.

The incident occurred before entry to the Gulf of Aden during inclement weather.

No injury has been reported and all crew members are safe.

The vessel has stopped in Djibouti to clear some damaged containers on deck before safely continuing her voyage, CMA CGM wrote.

“We are working with all relevant authorities who have been informed of the situation,” CMA CGM wrote.

Earlier this year the MV Madrid Bridge container vessel from Ocean Network Express (ONE) suffered a container collapse in the North Atlantic Ocean.

In December last year the container ship WADI ALRAYAN suffered a container collapse off the coast of Egypt.
