Crocs clogs may be a favourite brand of water-friendly footwear, but it can be costly when containers full of them fall overboard.

A unit of Germany’s HDI Global has filed a federal lawsuit against a Philadelphia container freight provider over shipments of footwear that went overboard from the 14,000-teu ONE Apus (built 2019).

The complaint by Crocs’ insurer adds to swirling claims that have been lodged over a November 2020 incident that saw about 1,800 containers go overboard.
