Image of the Day: Here There Be Giants

The 19,224 TEU MSC Oscar, the largest container ship in the world, is pictured here entering the Port of Rotterdam on Tuesday, March 3.  

The 396-meter-long and 59-meter-wide MSC Oscar arrived from Algeciras and will leave for Bremerhaven on Wednesday evening, March 4.

On March 9, the ship will return to Rotterdam, where it will be moored at the ECT in the Delta East terminal. After that, the MSC Oscar will leave for the Mediterranean via Felixstowe.

”We are very happy with the MSC Oscar’s arrival. Her shipping schedule confirms that Rotterdam is the perfect port for this class of ships: the MSC Oscar will be visiting Rotterdam twice,” said Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
