Container Record Broken at Port of Los Angeles
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.

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.
