CAT response services: Global marine - Maersk cargo ship loses 750 containers

Severe weather in the North Pacific led to the loss of approximately 750 containers overboard a Maersk-operated containership on January 16. Several containers on board have also been damaged. The ship was en route from China to Los Angeles when the incident occurred.

Maersk reported that all crew members are safe and that a detailed cargo assessment is ongoing. The vessel is continuing its voyage to dock in Los Angeles where it will be assessed. This makes for the third container loss incident recently reported in the Pacific, with the last being ONE Apus, which lost more than 1,800 containers at sea due to bad weather.
