COSCO Shipping's Ultra-Large Container Ship “Universe” 21,237 TEU  ETD Antwerp: 25/07/2018

Dear customer,

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the Cosco Shipping Universe (21,237 TEU)!!!

The vessel breaks China's record of largest container ship, which was set just last month by another COSCO ship: the COSCO Shipping Virgo, with a cargo capacity of 20,119 TEU. The Universe is 400 meters long and 58.6 meters wide, with a maximum draft of 16 meters and a design speed of 22 knots.

The ship was developed to be green and smart. It is China's first time installing an intelligent system in an ultra-large container ship (ULCS). Equipped with multiple cabin monitoring and alarm systems, and efficiency management and closed-circuit television monitoring systems, crew members will be able to conduct real-time surveillance over the performance of the unmanned cabins and all the key parts of the ship. The most advanced pilot control system, local area network system and ship-shore satellite communication system in the cab ensure a safe voyage and smooth communication.

Cosco Shipping Universe will call at Antwerp (DP World 1700)  23 July 2018 with following destinations:

SHANGHAI (27 days), TIANJIN (30 days), DALIAN (32 days) & QINGDAO (35 days)
