As the investigation into the grounding of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal begins, the vessel’s Japanese owner, Shoe Kisen, this morning declared General Average.
And a customer circular from Evergreen, seen by The Loadstar, confirms that Shoe Kisen this morning appointed Richard Hogg Lindley as adjustor.
For the vessel, now at anchor at the Bitter Lakes area undergoing technical inspections, a possible date of departure to ports of discharge has yet to be set.

Update from BDP International: General Average security will likely now be required from all Cargo Interests prior to the delivery of their cargo.
The vessel has been moved to the Great Bitter Lake for inspection, but it is not presently clear how long it will remain there before continuing its passage through the Suez Canal and onwards to ports of discharge.
BDP International is actively monitoring the situation and reaching out to our customers who have cargo aboard the Ever Given. We will continue to share updates as we receive them, but should you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your local BDP representative.
