Another Milestone for APM Terminals Maasvlakte II

The 18,300 TEU EEE-Class Marstal Maersk became the largest vessel to call the new Maasvlakte II expansion of the Port of Rotterdam, arriving Monday morning January 5th as part of the testing phase prior to regular weekly calls starting in February. 

The vessel is 399-meters (1,310 feet) long and 59-meters (194 feet) wide and sails in Maersk Line’s AE10 Asia/Europe service with the next port call in APM Terminals Tangier, Morocco.

APM Terminals Maasvlakte II has been designed to be the world’s safest, most technologically advanced and automated container handling facility, and began landside commercial operations with the opening of the truck gates last month.

Maasvlakte II is the extension of the Port of Rotterdam. Directly to the west of the current port and industrial area, a new top European location for port operations and industry was created in the North Sea.
