On 04.04.2017, on the way from Singapore to Port Said, the fire occurred on board of container carrier m/v MSC Daniela.

As of 10.04.2017, the fire has not been fought yet. For safety reason, the vessel anchored 4 nautical miles from the anchorage of Colombo (Sri Lanka). The crew abandoned the vessel. A few containers on board of the vessel are following Odessa. Shipowner declares that the degree of damage and cargo will be unknown until the vessel is moored and inspected.

Interlegal experts previously represented cargo owners and freight forwarders against dispatchers and shipowners under several container carriage incidents (General Average) related to Ukraine.

Upon announcement on General Average, we are ready to render the following services:

- Representing cargo owners’ interests against dispatchers;

- Receiving and delivering returnable cargos/refundable costs to cargo owners and freight forwarders.

Please notify us on your concern and/or your clients’ interests regarding the above issue, so we could provide the necessary consulting and representative assistance upon cargo receiving at Black Sea ports.
