Posted on 9/22/2020 by Roger Marks

The CMA CGM Brazil became the largest ship ever to dock on the East Coast of the United States when it entered the port of New York & New Jersey last week. At 366 meters (1,200 feet), the vessel is about as long as eight Statues of Liberty and has a capacity of 15,072 TEU.
CMA CGM Brazil also set the record for vessel size at the ports of Virginia, Savannah, and Charleston between September 15 and September 20.
