On Tuesday afternoon, 3 March, the MSC Oscar arrived at the APM1 terminal in Rotterdam. With a capacity of 19,224 TEU (20-foot containers), the 396 meters long and 59 meters wide ship is the largest container ship in the world.
The MSC Oscar arrived from Algeciras and will leave for Bremerhaven on Wednesday evening, 4 March. On 9 March the ship will return to Rotterdam, where it will be moored at the ECT in the Delta East terminal. After that the MSC Oscar will leave for the Mediterranean via Felixstowe.
MSC – Mediterranean Shipping Company – is the second largest container shipping company in the world. The company docks ten to fifteen ships per week at Rotterdam. “We are very happy with the MSC Oscar’s arrival. Her shipping schedule confirms that Rotterdam is the perfect port for this class of ships: the MSC Oscar will be visiting Rotterdam twice.
MSC has built up a sturdy position in Rotterdam over the past few years. I hope and expect that the relationship between MSC and Rotterdam will only become stronger in the years to come”, says Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
