Norden has instructed captains to fabricate fake logbooks
For years, tanker company Norden has instructed captains to write fake logbooks and paint over ship names in order to keep trips to Israel a secret. The activities were "wrong and unacceptable", the company states.
Ever Given's ship manager, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, does not expect to be made liable for the incident in the Suez Canal, but is nevertheless worried that the company's reputation could be at risk, CEO tells ShippingWatch.
The claim for compensation from the Suez Canal Authority is largely "unsubstantiated," says shipping company Evergreen, which hereby confirms the claim of USD 916 million. The parties have not yet reached an agreement.
