Freight Lost as Shipping Containers Go Overboard

Tags: , ,

Last month’s extreme weather conditions caused a major incident for freight in transit in the Bay of Biscay.
A 8,160 TEU container vessel lost a significant number of boxes overboard, during very rough weather in the Bay of Biscay on February 14. Although no official statement on the actual number has been given, it is thought that over 200 containers have been lost with other containers on board damaged as a result of collapsed stacks.

Weather conditions at the time of the incident were severe with wind blowing 60 knots and waves reaching 10 metres
