Maersk Line reports they have upped the bar today for the most containers ever loaded on to a ship.
The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller left Algeciras today with the world-record load of 18,168TEU en route to Tanjung Pelepas.
Niels Vestergaard Pedersen, Captain of Maersk McKinney Moller commented, “Personally I am both very proud, and humbled, to be the Captain of the iconic Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller, and to be the first vessel to cross the 18,000 TEU limit. All crew members have shared their excitement with cameras, questions, and of course a lot of planning and calculations.
