Rarely, General Average is declared on a container vessel. This means an event precipitated the need for all shippers/owners of items on the vessel, share a portion of the cost to repair or get the vessel operating again. Your items can be held by the steamship line until these charges are paid.
TGI and its underwriters will assist you throughout this process and work with the Salvage Adjusters assigned to the vessel to get your goods released. Your international all risks policy covers this event, so you should not incur any out of pocket expenses with regards to General Average.
