  • Maersk claims record for containers moved in single vessel port call.
  • The Maersk Evora arrived at the POLA with containers stacked nine high above deck, a first for any US port.
  • APMT used newly raised cranes, the tallest in North America, to load and unload the Maersk Evora.

Maersk Line has claimed it set a record when the Maersk Evora loaded and unloaded 24,846 TEUs. The carriers says that’s a new world record for a single vessel port call.

The international trade landmark took place at APM Terminals (APMT), Pier 400 in the Port of Los Angeles during the week of October 18, 2017.

Maersk’s 13,492 TEU container vessel arrived at the APMT terminal fully loaded and with containers stacked nine high above deck, a first for any US port, according to the port of LA. APMT used its newly raised cranes, the tallest in North America, to load and unload the vessel.

A special project heightened the cranes by over 30 feet by inserting longer leg sections in August 2017. The 1,200-foot Maersk Evora was delivered in 2011 and has a capacity of 13,492 TEU.
