[ November 13, 2023   //   ]

The Mumbai Maersk has set a new record for the deepest draft vessel to call at Hutchison Ports Port of Felixstowe. The 20,568teu vessel arrived on 11 November from Bremerhaven with a draft of 16.8 metres and sailed 24 hours later with a draft of 17.0 metres.

In early October the port announced the completion of a £130m project to deepen the approaches to the port and its main container berths.
