VIDEO: Containership rams pier

Published on December 28th, 2021

As reported on gCaptain, a containership rammed a dock on December 26 in Taichung, Taiwan. The ship is the around 1,000 TEU capacity Asiatic Sun which was being repositioned within the port when the accident occurred. As you can see from the video, the ship somehow lost control and rammed directly into the concrete pier, causing damage to both the ship and pier.
