MSC ARIANE INCIDENT ON PEARL SERVICE
The container ship MSC ARIANE, deployed on Mediterranean Shipping Company’s (MSC) Pearl Service, had to stop at sea due to an engine issue on April 2nd while en route from Xiamen, China to Los Angeles, USA. The vessel has been diverted to Wakayama, Japan for repairs.
MSC ARIANE was expected to berth in Los Angeles on April 24th. Due to the congestion in the Los Angeles area, we are now expecting a schedule adjustment to this original berthing plan.
We will communicate further as soon as we have updated information about the estimated arrival and berthing in Los Angeles.
Please contact us if you have any further question or to discuss alternative carrier routes if available.
