Freight owners await delivery schedule for YM Mandate cargo

Cargo owners with freight on the delayed Yang Ming ship YM Mandate will need to wait a few more days to find out how and when their cargo will be delivered after the vessel began leaking fuel oil at the berth in New Jersey on 30 September.

No cargo damage or loss has been reported following the YM Mandate incident at the Port of New York and New Jersey, according to the vessel operator's partner, Hapag-Lloyd, but the vessel will need to undergo repairs before sailing.

As a result, there will be schedule adjustments that will affect the time of delivery of the vessel's cargo. An updated schedule is expected to be available in the next few days, according to a Hapag-Lloyd spokesperson, who told Container News that at the moment, there are "no details available with regards to the cargo deliveries as the vessel provider is currently checking the situation."

All cargo operations were completed at the Global Container Terminal Bayonne Bridge terminal in New Jersey before the leak occurred, added Hapag-Lloyd, which is working closely with Yang Ming on a plan to deliver cargo destined for Savannah, Norfolk, and Jacksonville.

Yang Ming's 6,572TEU YM Mandate is deployed on THE Alliance's East Coast Loop 5 (EC5) service.

US Coast Guard officials along with its technical partners have stopped the flow of oil from the cracked hull of the YM Mandate. However, at the time of writing, the ship remains berthed at the Global Container Terminal, according to the latest updates.

In compliance with governing regulations and federal and state authorities, response measures have been implemented to address the spill by the vessel operator, said the latest announcement.
