The unprecedented container collapse aboard the boxship ONE Apus could end up costing $200 million in cargo damage. On a voyage from Yantian to Long Beach, ONE Apus encountered 20-foot swells at a position about 1,600 nm northwest of Hawaii. The incident saw most of the vessel’s on-deck container bays collapse, leading to 1,816 containers falling into the sea. While thousands of containers remain on deck, and they will have to be examined individually to determine the full extent of any internal damage; many show obvious external signs of damage, especially containers towards the bottom of each stack.
