The 21,413 TEU Ultra Large Container Ship OOCL Japan leaves Felixstowe in a "cut and run" - when the ship sails before all cargo operations have been completed. Cargo due to be unloaded is left aboard, and boxes due to be loaded are left on the quay.

In this instance, as well as only being alongside for about 30 hours, OOCL Japan lost a good deal of working time when Felixstowe's Ship-to-shore cranes came to a halt due to high winds during Thursday, 7 February.

"Cut and Run" departures generate considerable difficulties for many people in the shipping industry. The boxes due for this port are usually unloaded in the next port, and have to be brought back by feeder ship; transport booked to carry boxes to their inland destinations is cancelled, and shippers and forwarding companies have to explain to customers what has gone wrong!

Quite often these days the next port has specific windows for ships to be alongside, and if its missed then there could be hours or days waiting at anchor for a gap to come up. Can be especially annoying if a ship arrives after a vessel waiting because it missed its window, they get to berth first as they have a boon=king and on time. In NZ, deepsea vessels feeder cargo between ports quite freely, and this week one quite late and as the connecting vessel had to sail, the affected containers will be sitting at the terminal for two weeks waiting for the next opportunity. Cutting and running a necessary tool. Not helped by the "bigship" phenomenon which means only one option to most destinations per week, in the old days when lots of smaller ships on the route a delays may only have been a few days if the first opportunity missed.

It's really a difficult decision , and usually random cut, which cause some cgo be loaded, and some still in CY, even they are in 1 booking Sad . port/liner can reduce it by forecast and planning for the situation, with pay more effort to monitor operation/comunication with liner than usual, make a flexible plan. load/disch the important/sensitive cgo, leave the less one at terminal. can reduce it but cannot stop it
