THE troubled 13,900-TEU MADRID BRIDGE , which suffered a collapsed container stack mid-Atlantic, has at last found a berth at the little used Hugh K Leatherman terminal in Port of Charleston, reports London's Loadstar.
The spanking new Leatherman terminal is little used, despite high demand for berths because working conditions there are subject to a continuing management-union legal dispute in court.
The MADRID BRIDGE lost 65 containers overboard January 7 with another 89 damaged on deck heavy weather en route from Singapore to New York.
Rather than going to New York as planned, the ship was instead re-routed to Charleston, skipping congested Norfolk, Virginia and Savannah, Georgia port calls.
