Statement on Houston Ship Incident

Friday, April 22, 2011

Horizon Lines, Inc. (NYSE: HRZ), and APM Terminals issued the following statement:

 
The Horizon Challenger experienced an unfortunate incident while docking at the APM Terminals facility in Houston on April 15, 2011.  After being released by the tug, the vessel clipped the dock and damaged an APM Terminals crane.  
 
APM Terminals and Horizon Lines amicably and very quickly resolved the damage issue as part of a normal process that modestly delayed the ship's departure for San Juan, Puerto Rico.  The Challenger is currently expected to arrive in San Juan on schedule.
APM Terminals and Horizon Lines jointly regret any inconvenience this might have caused to Horizon customers.   
 
The ship is expected to arrive in San Juan on schedule.
