On October 30, a large container ship of 14052TEU, "ONE AQUILA" of ONE, encountered severe weather such as storms in the North Pacific, causing its stack to collapse and at least 100 containers on board fell into the water.
Hapag-Lloyd, a partner in the THE Alliance, announced that the container ship "ONE AQUILA" built in 2018 suffered severe weather during its voyage to the Port of Long Beach, causing the container to collapse. .
The total number of containers affected by the incident is not yet known. In view of the congestion at the port of California, ONE expects that this ship will be greatly delayed. Once there is a schedule recovery plan, it will be shared with everyone.
On September 11, one of ONE's container ships named "ONE COSMOS" encountered bad weather, which caused the collapse of the container stacks on board. Several containers were damaged but did not fall into the sea. The ship has a capacity of 8,100TEU and serves the trans-Pacific Pacific North 4 Service (PN4) route.
On July 13, the 9411TEU container ship "MSC Palak" sailed out of Wuguola Port near Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. Due to strong storms and rains in the sea at the time, it was confirmed that 23 containers fell into the water. .
