Big meets bigger - the MCX on the HMM Algeciras

The newest worldwide biggest container ship

Big meets bigger – „Where others are at their limit, BURKHARDT+WEBER is just beginning“, is a slogan that can be outdone in this case. With a container capacity of 24 TEU, the actually large MCX 1400 with a remarkable weight of 70 tons on board almost goes under.

HMM Algeciras, with a length of over 400 metres and a width of 61 metres, is the newest and world's largest container ship. Equipped with an ultra-modern hybrid scrubber system for exhaust gas cleaning in accordance with the international environmental requirements IMO 2020, the ship is the first of the new series - eleven more identical mega-carriers are to follow.

In May she called at the Port of Hamburg for the first time and is currently transporting our MCX 1400, divided into eight 40-foot containers, to China. The main route of the HMM, which will be sailing under the flag of Panama, will continue to be from China to Northern Europe.

This special trip was made possible by the sea freight experts of our freight forwarding partner transmaritim international, who have many years of experience with project loading
