Today’s image presents you with the Maersk Line’s 318,20-meter container ship Maersk Kotka during her visit to the Port of Charlestown.

The visit marked the first ever call of any ship from the 2M alliance, which was officially launched in January this year, to the port.

The 2M alliance is formed based on Maersk Line’s and MSC’s 10-year vessel sharing agreement (VSA) on the Asia-Europe, Transatlantic and Transpacific trades. Maersk Line is contributing to the alliance with approximately 110 vessels and MSC with approximately 75.

Maersk Kotka was built by Denmark-based Odense Steel Shipyard AS in 1996, registered in Mandeira (PT) and is currently sailing under the Portuguese flag. She left the Port of Charlestown on January 30th and is now heading for the Veracuz terminal, Mexico, according to the Maersk Line’s schedule list.
