THE biggest containership ever to enter Malta Freeport harbour, the 20,954-TEU Maltese-flagged CMA CGM Jean Mermoz arrived on its way to Asia from northern Europe, reported the Times of Malta. Built last year, it 400 metres long 59 metres abeam.

'This is an important milestone for the Freeport as it shows we're in an unrivalled position to operate vessels of this magnitude and larger as a result of the EUR300 million (US$329.8 million) investment in the facilities since privatisation in 2004,' said Freeport CEO Alex Montebello.



'With bigger vessels unloading and loading more containers on each call, investment is crucial to remain competitive. The Freeport can today handle the world's largest container vessels simultaneously on both terminals and turn them around with maximum efficiency,' he said.
