With a load of 19,038 TEU, the Mumbai Maersk has set a world record for highest-ever load and has surpassed the psychological benchmark of 19,000 TEU mark for the very first time – not only for a Maersk vessel, but any vessel in the world.
The second generation Triple-E vessel left the dock of Tanjung Pelepas Port, Malaysia, over the past weekend and sails now into Europe. First stop is expected at Rottendam on September 5th.
The Mumbai Maersk is a 2nd generation Triple-E class vessel with a nominal capacity of 20,568 TEU. The vessel is the newest to enter the Triple-E fleet in May 2018 and is deployed on the Asia-to-Europe service (AE5). The world record load of 19,038 TEU has raised a new bar for Maersk by surpassing Madison Maersk, a 1st generation Triple-E class vessel, which reached 18,215 TEU in 2015. At the same time, Mumbai Maersk overtakes all other reported record loadings from other carriers.
