While on her maiden voyage, the 20,568 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) “Munich Maersk”, currently one of the largest container ships in the world, berthed at EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg, on 5 August. 

The megaship belongs to the second generation of Maersk Line’s Triple-E class and calls Hamburg as part of the AE5 service of the 2M alliance, which connects European harbours with ports in Far East. 

The “Munich Maersk” is part of a series of eleven container ships, which will be delivered until end of 2018. The ships of the second generation of the Triple-E class aim to new standards in container shipping of the East-West-trade.

Despite the ship and her sisters having similar dimensions as the previous generation, they can load 2,000 TEU more and, compared to the first generation, the “Munich Maersk” is seven percent more efficient.

“Hamburg is an important location for Maersk Line and the maiden call of Munich Maersk is a great opportunity to celebrate our good cooperation with the city and the port,” stated Jens-Ole Krenzien, Vice President North West Continent.
