The once-stricken 13,900 teu Madrid Bridge, which lost 65 containers overboard with a further 89 damaged, is set to leave Charleston today according to vessel operator Ocean Network Express (ONE).
Containers were lost and damaged when the vessel was idling in the mid-Atlantic, attempting to time its arrival in New York, when a large swell caused the vessel to roll heavily, leading to the accident.
The ship arrived in Charleston on 19 January for damage inspection and to offload damaged containers, before re-joining the East Coast 4 (EC4) service.
A ONE advisory said the ship was due to call at Savannah today, with further calls in the US at Norfolk on 5 February and New York on 7 February, before departing for Singapore, with an estimated arrival date of 8 March.
