ONE’s New Panamax vessel suffers container collapse in the North Atlantic

The 13,900 TEU container ship Madrid Bridge has suffered a container collapse in the North Atlantic Ocean on 7 January, according to the vessel owner, Ocean Network Express (ONE).

The New Panamax container ship is deployed on the East Coast 4 (EC4) service of THE Alliance, which includes ONE, Hapag-Lloyd, Yang Ming and HMM. The accident occurred while Madrid Bridge was sailing to its next port of call in New York.

The reasons for the incident are still unknown, while investigations are underway, according to a statement.

"Our immediate priorities are to ensure the safety of the crew, the vessel and the cargo on board," said the Singaporean container carrier, adding that delays to the vessel's schedule are expected.
