Navios boxhsip loses three containers off Western Australia

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has confirmed that a Liberian-flagged container vessel, Navios Unite, has lost three containers off Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia.

The Navios-operated 8,200TEU ship, which was on a journey from the port of Fremantle to Adelaide in South Australia, reported losing the boxes overboard in rough weather about 3.3km south west of Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia at 8pm AWST on 25 June.

Overnight, AMSA tasked its Challenger jet from Perth to search an area of about 1,600km2 for sightings of the missing containers, but no containers have, so far, been found.

AMSA said it is still collecting information about the incident and "will determine its course of action once the circumstances are understood."
