A bad choice of photos…

gbu ship 490

You are showing one of our vessels (the Rotterdam Express) on your homepage with an article on a ship which blocks the Suez Canal. None of our vessels is involved in the incident and I have to ask you to remove the photo immediately from this article.

If you have sent this archive photo from Dec. 2005 out to customers in connection with this story please call the photo back. It suggests that our vessel broke down in the Suez Canal what is definitely not the case.

It was a poor choice of photos to go with the story, made by a regional online desk. We have removed it: GBU Editor
