MAERSK TAKES DELIVERY OF 8TH 6,600-TEU SHIP
Maersk is taking delivery of the Soroe Maersk, its eighth in a series of
nine 6,600-TEU "S-class" containership Saturday (May 29).
The S-class series complements the earlier "K-class" series of six
6,000-TEU containerships that started with the Regina Maersk in 1996.
Maersk has said that 13 of the big ships will be deployed in the new
AE5/TP6 "pendulum" loop serving Long Beach and Tacoma on the U.S. West Coast,
Asia and northern Europe.
