London Container Terminal Handles Its Largest Ever Container Ship

London Container Terminal in Tilbury, owned by Forth Ports Limited, this week welcomed the brand new Cap San Lorenzo with her cargo of over 9600 TEUs. At a dead weight of around 124,500t the vessel is the largest container ship to call at Tilbury’s deep sea berth.

Commenting on the arrival, Perry Glading, Chief Operating Officer of Forth Ports (owners of London Container Terminal) said: “LCT is the only port in the UK truly serving both deep sea and short sea customers. The arrival of the Cap San Lorenzo this week demonstrates our expertise and capability to handle large vessels with thousands of TEUs on board quickly and smoothly. The LCT team completed the work in 22 hours, which was 2 hours ahead of the planned scheduled departure, at a gross productivity rate of 26 moves per hour. We look forward to further calls in the coming months.”

The Cap San Lorenzo is part of the Hamburg Sud fleet of deep sea ships.
