Maersk Sembawang to touch Vallarpadom

The cashew season in South India is on and this brings the A P MollerMaersk Group to call its Maersk Line to cater to its customer on the Asia-Europe eastbounding routing. On July 21st container vessel Maersk Sembawang will touch Cochin port to deliver consignments at Vallarpadom and it will be the largest vessel to call at South India. This Singapore flagged vessel is 318.79 meters long and has a capacity of 6478 TEUs.

The previous largest container ship to call on South Indian port was also a Maersk Liner vessel named Maersk Kalamata in Chennai with a length of 303.83 meters and a capacity of 6416 TEUs.

The A P MollerMaersk Groups network is spread across 125 countries around the globe and has a fleet of over 500 vessels with a large number of employees in 325 offices.


  • Please dont pass wrong information to people. Maersk Sembawang is not the biggest in Maersk Line. There are lots of ships much bigger than this in Maersk. The biggest Maersk line ship is 397 M long Maersk E class vessels( Emma Maersk and her sistert vessels), which have a capacity of 14000 TEU. 18000 TEU is expected next year though. I am a Mersk line officer presently writing this from a 367 M long ship
