Additional information by TradeWinds:
According to a report of TradeWinds (www.TradeWindsNews.com) the "Milano Bridge" is owned by Japan’s K Line. However it is on charter to One Ocean Network (ONE), the all-Japanese boxship joint venture company.

“ONE is urgently looking into the circumstances of this (accident) and is giving full co-operation to the terminal operators and the local authorities in Busan,” it said.

The commercial management of the ship is with K Line. But its International Safety Management (ISM) manager is listed by port state control data base Equasis as Singapore based Fleet Management.

The vessel is listed as owned by MI DAS Shipping, a company linked to Japanese shipowner Doun Shipping.

The ship’s protection and indemnity cover is with the Japan P&I Club which is likely to face a costly claim as a result of the accident.

Similar crane and ship collisions in the past have run up claims running up to tens of millions of US dollars for P&I insurers, which are liable for the loss of the crane and the ship but also disruption caused to the port as a result of the accident.

EDITOR'S REMARK:
We only report on the incident objectively and we do not allow ourselves to make a quick judgement about what happened.
This is a terrible accident, especially for the involved crews on ships and cranes, the captain and the pilot. Please have respect for the people! We will have to wait for the investigation and will continue to report on it.

Pilot remark is in bad taste.
Bridge team should have taken action in advance to reduce the speed.

We have decided to use the original wording of the report here, although from our point of view this is already an evaluation. This can only be associated with a voice recording.
We are working to preserve the report in its original and full length. Obviously it was produced internally by ONE and a voice recording was used.
