The “Cap San Raphael” is one of six new container ships built for Hamburg Süd by the Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan.

With 2,100 reefer slots, they have the largest reefer capacity worldwide, and highlight Hamburg Süd‘s capacity in one of its core competences: transportation of refrigerated goods.

  • Length overall: 333.2 m
  • Width: 48.2 m
