'We Not Targeted By Australia Vessel Ban': MSC

'We Not Targeted By Australia Vessel Ban': MSC
MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company is a responsible employer and would like to make clear that it does not oversee the maintenance, or the workforce, of the chartered vessel Kia Ora.

The statement follows the news that the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has banned the Liberian-flagged containership MSC Kia Ora from entering or using Australian ports for three months. 
 
According to AMSA, the move comes after Vega-Reederei, the ship operator, failed to ensure that crew were paid their wages in full and on time, and that critical equipment was maintained.
 
"MSC is not the target of a recent Australian Maritime Safety Authority instruction about crew wages: this is directed to the owner of this vessel. The vessel was off-hired immediately upon MSC becoming aware of the AMSA findings," said the statement from MSC.
 
MSC has a 98% crew retention rate on the ships it owns and manages, thanks largely to the good working conditions, regular pay and best-in-class training opportunities for the crew MSC employs directly.
