Port of Felixstowe tops record container moves
The Port of Felixstowe last week achieved a record 5,610 container moves from a vessel operated by China Shipping Container Lines, thought to be the largest ever exchange of containers at a port in the United Kingdom.
This breaks the previous record of 5,586, set on China Shipping's CSCL America, also in Felixstowe, in early March.
The new record was achieved with the 9,600-TEU Xin Hongkong, deployed by China Shipping on its weekly Asia/Europe AEX1 service.
Hutchison Ports (UK) Ltd., a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s Hutchison Port Holdings, is the owner and operators of the Port of Felixstowe.
