First 20,000-TEU Vessel Calls Rotterdam

First 20,000-TEU Vessel Calls Rotterdam
Danny Gill

The MOL Triumph recently arrived at the quay of Rotterdam World Gateway at Maasvlakte 2 (port number 8980). This was the first time that a container ship with a capacity of over 20,000 TEU called on the port of Rotterdam.

For more than two years, the MSC Oscar headed the global ranking of largest container ships. This spring however, the vessel was pushed out of the Top 3. In May and June, the three ULCCs (ultra large container carriers) that lead the pack will be calling Rotterdam.

Rotterdam is beginning to see more of these ULCCs as they also welcomed the Maersk Madrid, which has a cargo capacity of 20,568 TEU. June 23 and 24 will see the OOCL Hong Kong mooring at Euromax. With a capacity of 21,100 TEU, this ship was recently recognized as the world’s largest container vessel.

Rotterdam’s new terminals at Maasvlakte 2 are starting to pick up steam, and shipping lines have moved sizeable volumes of cargo that they had begun to transport via different locations in late 2015-early 2016 back to Rotterdam again.
