MSC takes delivery of world’s largest container ship

With our comprehensive portfolio of international container shipping services, Davies Turner was interested to read that Shanghai-based Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) has built and delivered the largest container ship in the world to Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).

MSC Tessa has a container capacity of 24,116 teu and is the first of four same-size container ships purchased by the largest container line in the world.

According to Hudong-Zhonghua, a unit of China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC), the vessel is currently the world's largest container ship in terms of teu capacity, overtaking the 24,004-teu Ever Alot.

The mega container vessel measures 399.99 m in length and 61.5 m in width.

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group reported that the second ship on order from the series has completed sea trials and that the other two sister ships are also under construction. All the remaining boxships are expected to be delivered before August 2023.
