On Tuesday afternoon the world’s largest containership, MSC Oscar, arrived at the APM1 terminal in Rotterdam.
The MSC Oscar, which has a capacity of 19,224teu and is 396m long and 59m wide, arrived from Algeciras and will leave for Bremerhaven this evening (Wednesday). On 9th March the ship will return to Rotterdam, where it will be moored at the ECT in the Delta East terminal and after it will leave for the Mediterranean via Felixstowe.
MSC – Mediterranean Shipping Company – is the second largest container shipping company in the world and the company docks 10 to 15 ships per week at Rotterdam.
“We are very happy with the MSC Oscar’s arrival. Her shipping schedule confirms that Rotterdam is the perfect port for this class of ships: the MSC Oscar will be visiting Rotterdam twice. MSC has built up a sturdy position in Rotterdam over the past few years and I hope and expect that the relationship between MSC and Rotterdam will only become stronger in the years to come”, said Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
