Image of the Day: Gerda Maersk Raises the Bar

2M Gerda Maersk berthed at AGCT

Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), ICTSI’s container handling facility in the Port of Rijeka, Croatia, recently serviced the largest vessel to call in the country, the 10,000 TEU-capacity Gerda Maersk.

The 367-meter vessel is part of the 2M Alliance by two of the world’s megaliners Maersk and Mediterranean Shipping Co. The alliance, which connects Rijeka and the Far East, deploys 15 vessels with average capacities of 9,600 to 11,300 TEUs.

The previous record was held by CMA CGM’s Cendrillon, an 8,500-TEU megaboxship which made its maiden call at Berth 2 of the AGCT in May 2014.
