Biggest ever ship for US East Coast

[ September 16, 2020   //   ]

APM Terminals Port Elizabeth, part of the Port of New York and New Jersey, handled the 15,072 teu CMA CGM Brazil on September 12, the largest vessel ever to call the US East Coast. It was made possible by the Bayonne Bridge clearance programme, which increased air draft to 65.5m and a harbour deepening program, which created a 15.2m deep shipping channel.
