This advisory contains updated details to the incident involving the MSC Archimidis on the TP16. As previously communicated the vessel experienced main engine issues, while enroute to the Panama Canal from Busan, Korea.

Vessel operations

Vessel providers MSC has informed us that the vessel berthed Newark PNCT on January 11th for cargo operations. She will then continue her voyage to Norfolk followed by Savannah. Cargo for which security has been submitted will be released by the adjusters for delivery.

Value protect customers

In case you have not submitted the commercial invoice with the Cost/Invoice and Freight value, kindly do so at your earliest convenience to enable us to put up the security on your behalf and get the cargo released.

Non-value protect customers

Please note that containers will start accruing storage costs after they are discharged and remain unsecured beyond a reasonable time. Hence, if not already done, we urge you to arrange the salvage security and submit the requested documents as soon as possible if not already done, since the delivery of the container(s) can only be arranged once acceptable security and requested documents are received by the adjusters.
