Ocean Network Express (ONE) operated containership Madrid Bridge that suffered a container stack collapse in the Atlantic is expected to arrive in Charleston on 20 January.

The 13,900 teu Madrid Bridge suffered a container collapse on 7 January in the North Atlantic while bound for New York as part of its EC4 service losing 60 containers overboard and damaging a further 80.

ONE said in a customer advisory that the vessel was expected to arrive in the Port of Charleston on/or around the 20 January and to berth in Hugh K. Leatherman upon completing the necessary inspection and assessment of the vessel condition.

“The plan is to discharge all damaged units and Charleston imports during the vessel’s call in Charleston, subject to prevailing conditions,” ONE said.
