Dear Valued Customer,
We write to inform you that on 2 July 2009, while sailing from Hong Kong the ship, MOL Prosperity, which is carrying your cargo, reported smoke emitting from cargo holds 6 and 7.

We will provide you with timely updates on this situation as soon as we receive further information from MOL. In the meantime, if you require further assistance, please contact your local APL representative.
On behalf of APL, we sincerely regret any inconvenience this incident has caused.
