Slovenian Koper Container Terminal welcomed its largest container vessel on Tuesday, December 29th, the MSC Luciana.

The MSC Luciana is the largest container vessel in terms of TEU capacity to visit Koper – it can carry 11,660 standard 20ft containers.

With the four shore to ship cranes the terminal unloaded almost 2,000 containers and another 900 have been loaded.

The ship is part of the 2M alliance, formed by two largest global ship-owners, the MSC and the Maersk Line, and operates on the Asia – Adriatic string. In this rotation Koper is the first port of call in the Adriatic meaning that the cargo coming from Far East has the shortest transit time.
