CMA CGM loses general average case after boxship deemed unseaworthy

CMA CGM is set to miss out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in general average contributions, after the High Court ruled that a vessel that grounded while departing Xiamen in 2011 was rendered unseaworthy by a defective passage plan

Clyde & Co — which acted for claimants — describes outcome as ‘significant judgment’ that highlights need for shipowners to ensure accurate passage planning, particularly when navigating confined and difficult waters
