Rotterdam’s APM1 terminal welcomed the MSC Oscar from Algeciras recently before it is scheduled to leave for Bremerhaven, Germany on Wednesday March 4, 2015.
With a capacity of 19,224 TEU (20-foot containers), the 396 meters long and 59 meters wide ship is the largest container ship in the world.
Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, said: “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. I hope and expect that the relationship between MSC and Rotterdam will only become stronger in the years to come”.
