The world’s largest container vessel HMM Algeciras departed for Europe from Yantian, China on Friday. The containership made by South Korea’s HMM, formerly known as Hyundai Merchant Marine, first entered Busan, a southern port city in Korea, in late April and took off two days later with 7,156 TEUs, or twenty-foot equivalent units. After passing through China’s Ningbo and Shanghi, it arrived in Yantian on May 7 and departed for Europe the next day with 19,621 TEUs, setting a record for the world’s largest shipment.
