Maersk Cruises New Suez Canal


A video released by Maersk Line shows a time-lapse of one of its containerships sailing down the new Suez Canal.

The canal was inaugurated recently and cost a total of US$8.5 billion to complete.

In the video, the ship enters the new canal from the south side and travels the entire 163-kilometre stretch in just over three minutes.

Maersk is currently the Suez Canal’s top consumer, having made 1,400 transits in 2014.
