May 26, 2020

The APL England on Wednesday was escorted to the Port of Brisbane, where Australian officials will investigate an at-sea incident in which 40 containers were lost overboard and nearly 75 others were damaged.

Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) surveyors conducted an inspection of the container ship at anchorage on Tuesday and determined the vessel was structurally sound and could be safely brought into port. Two harbor tugs, one container salvage response vessel, two Queensland water police vessels and a Maritime Safety Queensland pollution response vessel escorted the APL England into Moreton Bay.
