Hapag Lloyd declares General Average on Yantian Express

29. January 2019

The declaration of General Average is the result of the fire on deck and the subsequent firefighting efforts on the vessel. As you probably know the fire is under control now and the vessel will be towed to Freeport, Bahamas.

Of course it will take a lot of time to know the full degree of damage occurred but doubtlessly there will be a high number of cargo claims. Hapag Lloyd is not able to provide specific information about the state of the cargo at this moment but nevertheless ZASS is at your disposal to provide all possible services to recover claimant´s losses when the time comes.
