PDZ claims to be unfazed by vessel arrest

Malaysia’s PDZ Holdings has tried to play down the financial impact from the arrest of its vessel PDZ Mewah over unpaid bunker bills. PDZ said it was looking to challenge the arrest of the 1,000 teu ship which was nabbed by Dan-Bunkering (Singapore).

“The expected losses will be in the range of RM90,000 to RM100,000 per month, as a result of the additional costs arising from purchasing slots from third party vessels,” PDZ said.

Diverse Malaysian conglomerate PDZ is involved in feeder shipping via subsidiary PDZ Lines as well as offshore and LPG.
