The third Oscar Class containership of MSC has been christened.

The official ceremony for naming MSC Zoe, a 19,224-TEU vessel, took place yesterday in Hamburg.

The sister of MSC Oscar and MSC Oliver was named after the four-year Zoe Vago - a granddaughter of the company founder and MSC chairman Gianluigi Aponte.

Last week the vessel was filmed in the Netherlands.
