We have learned of an incident involving the vessel ARCHIMIDIS, a Liberia flag, 89,776 gt, 2006 built, fully cellular containership, which reportedly was disabled and drifting southwest of Acapulco. The vessel is carrying cargoes loaded at various ports in China and Korea, bound for Cristóbal, Savannah, Norfolk and New York.
