The ultra-large container vessel departed Port Klang in Malaysia bound for Felixstowe - UK as part of AEC1 service carrying 18,601 TEUs. The vessel will be sailing for two weeks.

This unprecedented westbound shipment is also UASC’s highest utilization to date of this very eco-efficient class, meaning the CO2 output per TEU on this journey is set to be more than 60% lower if the same containers were shipped on board a 13,500 TEU ship.



Containers on board were loaded by UASC and its partners in the Ocean Three alliance. M.V. Al Muraykh was delivered in August 2015; the same vessel was celebrated across different Asian and European ports while on its maiden voyage earlier this year.
