Mystery Delay For Asia Inbound Vessel

 

A mystery incident has delayed the voyage of the vessel  “APL Vanda” en-route to the UK from Asia, which will delay its arrival by over two weeks.

The 17,300 teu vessel is currently idling off the coast of Djibouti, near the entrance to the Red Sea, after an unexplained incident on 3rd July.

Initially, we were advised that the vessel will omit its UK call of Southampton, which was due on 17th July, and containers will be discharged at Rotterdam. However, we are now being advised that the vessel will discharge Southampton-bound cargo in Tangiers, which will be transhipped directly to another ship.

The vessel serves on the Ocean Alliance’s FAL3 Asia-Europe schedule, which calls at  Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian, Singapore and Jeddah before heading to Europe. This delay is expected to add some disruption to the service for the coming weeks.

We will continue to keep customers, that have been affected by this incident, fully up to date with developments.
