Further to our CustomerInfo of March 18, 2019, we are pleased to report that all containers in the fire impacted areas in way of cargo holds 1 and 2 (on and under deck) have been discharged from the vessel.
All customers whose containers have been discharged and are ready for on-carriage have already been informed, and we are currently working on a solution to transship those containers, which cannot be reloaded back on the vessel.
Presently, the plan is for the balance of the undamaged cargo to remain on board the Yantian Express, which will depart Freeport once needed repairs are finalized. However, the final port of call for the vessel is still to be nominated and we will advise further on this aspect as soon as feasible.
Please be reminded that all cargo interests who have not done so already promptly contact the Average Adjuster in order to arrange for the posting of General Average and Salvage security so that their cargo can be released in a timely manner.
For all other information, we invite you to call our dedicated hotline directly at the following telephone number:

We shall keep you closely informed on further developments.
