E.R. KOBE – Update – General Average

Further to our initial Casualty Advice, W.E. Cox Claims Group have been instructed on behalf of a number of cargo interests and are in contact with General Average Adjusters who have recently advised that the Vessel is at anchorage off of China and will shortly be allowed to discharge cargo at Shanghai before proceeding to continue her voyage.

As a result of the General Average declaration, security will be required prior to arrival at destination ports in order to obtain release of sound cargoes and advance notice will be required to arrange survey of potentially damaged cargoes. W.E. Cox Claims Group are working closely with the General Average Adjuster and General Average Surveyor to fulfil the Vessel Owners requirements and minimise disruption to cargo interests.

In this regard, if you require any assistance in in arranging surveys, appointing fire experts, adjusting potential losses, providing General Average Security, or undertaking recovery action please do not hesitate to contact us. As appropriate, please contact:
