hhla.pngThe 20,600 TEU newbuilding has been visiting some of the major European ports, the latest being the Port of Hamburg in Germany.

On March 14, the megaship docked at HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB), becoming the biggest vessel ever to call the port.

Peter Wolf, Managing Director of CMA CGM Germany, believes that the first arrival of the CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupéry represents a major milestone: “We are very pleased to welcome our new flagship here in Hamburg for the first time. It will play a key role in regular services between Asia and Northern Europe.”

Built at HHIC-Phil’s Subic facility, the 400-meter ship was handed over to CMA CGM, in January 2018. It is deployed in French Asia Line 1 service which connects Asia to Northern Europe.

After transiting the Suez Canal, CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupéry visited the Port of Algeciras in early March, before heading to Southampton, Dunkerque and Hamburg.
