The mythical mark of 19,000 TEU was recently surpassed by the Mumbai Maersk as it set a new world record for a highest-ever load of 19,038 TEU. This record is not only for a vessel operated by Maersk, but any vessel in the world.

The record-breaking the second generation Triple-E vessel left Tanjung Pelepas Port in Malaysia en route to Europe with the first stop expected on September 5th at Rotterdam in Holland. The vessel has a nominal capacity of 20,568 TEU and is the latest addition to the Triple-E fleet operating on the Asia-to-Europe service (AE5).

The new world record also surpasses their previous best with the Vessel Madison Maersk a 1st generation Triple-E class vessel, which reached 18,215 TEU in 2015. Along with the TEU record, the Mumbai Maersk has overtaken all other reported record loadings from other carriers.

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas is one of the hub terminals which are experiencing high productivity aiding the strategic progress for Maersk.

APM Terminals Chief Operating Officer, Keith Svendsen commented, “Our hubs are currently breaking existing productivity records. This record on most loaded containers during a port stay is one of many illustrations showing that we are well-positioned to become a company of operators who are proud, passionate and world-class at servicing our clients.”
