Claims filed in US federal courts following the massive ONE Apus cargo loss last year have surpassed $13m.

Cargo insurers are seeking at least $11.4m from carriers for everything from furniture to sex toys lost in the Pacific Ocean after the 14,052-teu, 2019-built container ship ran into severe weather in November 2020.

A further $1.66m is being sought in two lawsuits filed against the vessel and its ownership interests by cargo owners.
