Containers removed from cargo ship

Containers stuck on the Somers Isles cargo ship from Wednesday were removed on Friday, the CEO of Polaris Holdings said.

Some items were not removed from the ship on Wednesday because one of the docks' two cranes broke down.

The crane is one of two used to unload ships.

Perishables and other priority items were taken off the ship on Wednesday.

The Somers Isles had to move away from the offloading area to allow another ship on Thursday and the remainder of its container load were removed on Friday.

Mr Jones, whose firm is the parent of dock operators Stevedoring Services, said the broken crane did not halt dock operations but “just slows things down a bit.”
