Not a good start to 2019 for the world’s second largest box line MSC. Yesterday it lost some 270 boxes from the MSC Zoe as it was heading for Bremerhaven and encountered heavy seas. In scenes eerily reminiscent of the grounding of the MSC Napoli in the Channel a few years ago, a lot of the cargo has been washed up on the Dutch islands of Vlieland, Terschelling and Ameland, where some residents found Christmas had come a second time, gleefully salvaging flat-screen TVs among other bounty, according to this report from DutchNews.
