Suez Canal: Evergreen Blocked from Offloading Containership's Cargo
In efforts by Evergreen, the operator of Ever Given, to have the containership’s cargo separated from the vessel in any legal action have failed. The 20,000TEU Ever Given was arrested by Egyptian authorities, pending settlement of the Suez Canal Authority’s almost £1bn claim for compensation, after the grounding of the vessel shut down the key waterway for six days last month. In a statement released on Friday, the Taiwan-based line said it was investigating the possibility of the vessel and its cargo being treated separately, so that it could remove cargo to other vessels, allowing it to continue to its destination.
But according to a spokesman for Evergreen, the Egyptian courts have since clarified that both the vessel and its cargo are under arrest and the company’s request has been denied.
