CMA CGM ship loses 55 containers in Indian Ocean
A CMA CGM container ship, APL Vanda, reportedly lost 55 containers in the Indian Ocean earlier this month due to a stack collapse.

The vessel was en route from Singapore to Southampton via Suez, before entering the Gulf of Aden on 3 July when the accident occurred.

The ultra-large container vessel was forced to return to the coast of Djibouti on 6 July.

The 13,892 TEU, Singapore-flagged ship remains at the port of Djibouti and is yet to announce its departure.

CMA CGM has yet to comment on the incident.
