ZIM Rotterdam Holds the record now at 10,064 TEU, and set it with her first arrival in June 2017. She and her sisters are now regular callers.

APL Slaah, now owned by french Shipping line CMA-CGM comes in at 10,960 TEU, handily beating the previous record. She is currently set to sail again after dark, so good pictures are unlikely.

 

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
