The cargo ship MSC Zoe encountered heavy weather while sailing towards Bremerhaven, Germany, on 2 January. Unfortunately, a number of the containers were damaged or lost overboard due to very difficult conditions. As many as 270 boxes have fallen off the vessel in rough seas and more than 20 containers have to date been washed up on islands and beaches of the Netherlands' mainland. As far as we can tell Scanlink has no cargo on MSC Zoe.
