Ocean Three Loads Record Breaking Cargo on Al Muraykh

Middle Eastern container carrier United Arab Shipping Company (UASC), along with its partners in the Ocean Three alliance (O3), CMA CGM and CSCL, has loaded a record breaking cargo of 18,601 TEUs on board its green ship M/V Al Muraykh.

The 199,744 dwt ultra-large container vessel departed Port Klang in Malaysia bound for Felixstowe – UK as part of AEC1 service carrying 18,601 TEUs.

According to the company, M/V Al Muraykh will be sailing for two weeks.

This unprecedented westbound shipment is also UASC’s highest utilization to date of this very eco-efficient class, meaning the CO2 output per TEU on this journey is set to be more than 60% lower if the same containers were shipped on board a 13,500 TEU ship.

The Malta-flagged M/V Al Muraykh, delivered in August 2015, features a length of 400 m and a width of 59 m.
