A container ship owned by MSC ran aground, paralyzing the port channel

At around 8:10 a.m. UTC on January 9, a large container ship under MSC with a capacity of 8,500 TEU – the MSC ELAINE – lost control while leaving the port of Gioia Tauro, Italy, and hit the southern breakwater, causing it to run aground

The port of Gioia Tauro is located in the center of the Mediterranean Sea, the meeting point of the east-west route and the trans-European corridor Helsinki-La Valletta, the largest transshipment terminal in Italy and the most important container traffic in the Mediterranean region one of the hubs

After the accident, a number of tugboats went to help the MSC ELAINE out of trouble, but as of this morning, the MSC ELAINE is still stranded, and the traffic in Gioia Tauro Port is still blocked

In view of the fact that the grounding of the MSC ELAINE has paralyzed the waterway in and out of the port of Gioia Tauro (Gioia Tauro), foreign trade export companies that have loaded this voyage and have recently passed through and called at the port of Gioia Tauro (Gioia Tauro) need to pay special attention and report to the port in time. The stowage shipping company confirms whether the shipping schedule of its own cargo will be affected
