Posted at 14:08h in Blog
Efforts by Evergreen, the operator of Ever Given, to have the vessel’s cargo separated from the ship in any legal action have failed. Evergreen had hoped to move the cargo to other vessels to allow it to continue to its destination.
The Ever Given was arrested by Egyptian authorities, pending settlement of the Suez Canal Authority’s almost $1-billion claim for compensation, after the grounding of the vessel shut down the key waterway for six days last month.
According to a spokesman for Evergreen, the Egyptian courts have clarified that both the vessel and its cargo are under arrest and the company’s request has been denied.
