The biggest ship to dock in UK and Germany has arrived in Hamburg, coming from Southampton, on May 15, 2016. It is the first of a new type of ultra-large container vessels to enter service in 2017. Its operators claim it is more fuel efficient than previous carriers. Built by Samsung in South Korea, the ship will run between Chinese and European ports. It can hold the equivalent of 20,170 containers. The ship is the first of MOL's fleet of six 20,000 TEU-class vessels. It is on its first trip to northern Europe since entering service earlier in 2017. Coming from Southampton, it berthed at the Burchard Quay in Hamburg at 9 p.m.
