The container ship Ever Given sailed for 18 minutes above the 12-knot speed limit in the Suez Canal last year before the master lost control and grounded the ship, according to court papers filed in London.

A group of cargo owners and their insurers are claiming more than $325,000 in damages and costs from shipowner Shoei Kisen Kaisha for negligence and breach of duty because of delays caused by the grounding on 23 March 2021.
