Qatar-based maritime and logistics company Milaha has acquired its largest container vessel to date, the 3,768 TEU boxship Majd.

The new ship will be one of the 17 container vessels that the group operates, and is part of the group’s strategy to optimize its container shipping network with larger tonnage to meet increasing customer demand for capacity and cost efficiency in a competitive market.

“Majd will be phased into our existing network and will gradually replace smaller tonnage,” Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, Milaha’s President and CEO, said.

Milaha currently fully owns and operates a fleet of over 80 vessels, including LNG and product tankers, offshore support vessels, container and bulk vessels, among other vessel categories.

Built by South Korea’s STX Shipbuilding, Majd features a length of 246.8 metres and a deadweight of 44,985 metric tonnes.
