[ May 6, 2015   //   ]

CMA CGM’s largest vessel passed through the Suez Canal for the first time on 2 May. Suez Canal Authority chairman, Admiral Mohab Mameesh, boarded the 17,722teu CMA CGM Kerguelen to mark the occasion. The canal is in the midst of an upgrade programme that will allow it to regularly handle some of the largest ships afloat.
