Madrid Maersk @ Rotterdam 12.06.2017

Today yet another record for the Port of Rotterdam, not really the dimensions of the ship itself, but its container capacity being about 20.560 TEU it erases the previous record of the “Mol Triumph” (20.100 TEU) which was set 3 weeks ago.

However, within 2 weeks the record of the “Madrid Maersk” will be erased by the “OOCL Hong Kong”, this new ship is able to carry about 21.000 TEU.

Interesting note that all three record ships have more or less the same dimensions, so it is all a matter of utilizing every cubic meter on board for an extra TEU.
