Ultra Large Container Ship loads a record-breaking 18601 TEU

This week a record breaking amount  of 18,601 TEUs was loaded on board M.V. Al Muraykh, one of the world’s three greenest vessels. This means that a loading capacity of 98,9% has been achieved.

The ultra-large container vessel departed Port Klang in Malaysia bound for Felixstowe - UK as part of AEC1 service carrying 18,601 TEUs. The vessel will be sailing for two weeks.

 

This unprecedented westbound shipment has also decreased the CO2 output per TEU on this journey. It is set to be more than 60% lower if the same containers were shipped on board a 13,500 TEU ship.
