Jebel Ali port welcomes mega container ship HMM Gdansk on maiden call

On 8 September 2020 DP World’s Jebel Ali Port welcomed HMM Gdansk, one of the world’s largest container vessels, which was on the return leg of her maiden international voyage between the Far East and Europe.

Jebel Ali is the only port in the Arabian Gulf region connected to the arterial FE3 (Far East 3) loop with the ability to accommodate mega vessels.

HMM Gdansk is 400m long and has a capacity of 24,000TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units). The vessel and her crew led by Captain Hyungik Cho were welcomed by DP World UAE Region, and other officials from Jebel Ali Port.

The landmark mega carrier arrived from DP World’s London Gateway before sailing to Singapore, her next call in a journey that began in Busan, South Korea on 29 June, with calls at Yantian, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Rotterdam and Antwerp.
