APM Terminals suffered an embarrassing incident at its New Jersey terminal yesterday. A crane operator at its terminal at the Port of New York and New Jersey managed to knock three boxes full of cars and kitchen supplies from the Maersk Kensington into the sea. The ship had recently docked from Norfolk, Virginia.
“The containers were non-hazardous and were floating at the time of arrival,” the local port authority said in a statement. “The vehicles had no batteries, fuel or any liquids which may have entered the bay.”
The authority said no one was injured, and that an investigation was continuing.
