MSC Cancels Kia Ora Charter after AMSA Findings Emerge

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) hired off the chartered vessel Kia Ora on becoming aware of the AMSA findings, adding that it does not oversee the maintenance, or the workforce, of the chartered vessel Kia Ora.

 AMSA’s investigation about crew wages the company said is directed to the owner of the vessel.

Earlier this month, the Liberian-flagged containership was banned from accessing Australian ports for a period of three months.

This was a result of the inspection which revealed that Germany-based Vega-Reederei, the ship’s owner, failed to ensure that crew were paid their wages in full and on time, and that critical equipment was maintained.
