The world's largest cargo container "Mediterranean Gulson" round maiden voyage in Tianjin Port

The world's largest container ship "Mediterranean Gulson" round officially opened its first flight in Tianjin Port. The maritime ship that was launched on July 4th will complete the export of more than 3,000 TEUs in Tianjin Port and will travel through several ports to the North West Europe.

Tianjin Port is a world-class artificial deep-water port with a water depth of 22 meters. The 300,000-ton ship and the world's largest container ship can enter and leave the port freely around the clock. It is also the cradle of the development of container transportation in New China. China's first international container route and the first professional container terminal were opened in Tianjin Port.

The “Mediterranean Gulson” has a wheel length of 399.9 meters, a width of 61.5 meters, a maximum load of 22,4986.4 tons, and a maximum carrying capacity of 23,756 standard containers, which was built by South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industry Shipyard.

“Tianjin Port is a gateway port in northern China, radiating a vast inland hinterland, and the navigation and berth conditions are suitable for stopping. Therefore, the 'Mediterranean Gulson' round will be selected in Tianjin Port.” Zhu Jing, Managing Director of Lisheng Mediterranean Shipping (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., said.

Tianjin Port is located at the “One Belt, One Road” sea-land junction, and has traded with more than 400 ports in more than 180 countries and regions in the world. It has been among the top ten ports in the world for many years. In the first six months of this year, the port's cumulative container throughput was 8.33 million TEUs, a year-on-year increase of 6.7%, higher than the average growth rate of coastal ports nationwide.

"The large-scale ship is an inevitable trend in the development of the world's low-carbon economy. Whether it can receive the world's largest container ship and its operational efficiency has reached the international leading level has become an important symbol to measure the world's first-class strong port." Tianjin Port (Group) Co., Ltd. Luo Xunjie, vice president, said that Tianjin Port and Hong Kong accelerated the intelligent upgrade and transformation, and greatly improved the efficiency of operation. In the second quarter of this year, the world's advanced level of 218 natural boxes per hour was achieved during the loading and unloading operations of ultra-large container ships.
