Samsung Electronics and Zim are looking to settle the South Korean giant’s US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) complaint over two years’ worth of alleged misconduct.

Attorneys for Zim filed papers with the commission on 18 November asking for an extension to file an answer to Samsung Electronics America’s October complaint accusing it of failing to complete deliveries of goods, levying nearly 10,000 detention and demurrage charges, charging those fees twice and retaliating once it complained.
