North America West Coast – North Europe/Western Mediterranean Service - “Cap Jackson” Voyage 028 Eastbound Engine Room Fire

(Morristown, NJ)…Further to our Advisory dated July 29, 2020 we would like to inform you that the “Cap Jackson” is scheduled to berth at Balboa/Panama on Sunday August 2, 2020 to partially discharge her cargo. The ship will then transfer to a layby berth to commence repairs. The estimated repair time will depend on the availability of spare parts which have to be airfreighted to Panama. Due to COVID-19, flights (airfreight capacity) into Panama are limited. We will provide more information as soon as available. We sincerely apologize for the expected arrival delays at destination for the cargo onboard the ship.

Please be rest assured that we will do all possible to minimize the impact of this incident. We will keep you closely advised.

Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have.
