Maersk Line has set a new world record by transporting 17,603 containers between Europe and Asia, on its flagship vessel.

 

Mary Maersk, the third vessel in the triple-E class series, left Algeciras, Spain, on its eastward journey bound for Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia with the record amount. It has a nominal capacity of 18,270 TEU, but so far that capacity has not been fully utilised.
