Cosco YantianToday the Cosco Yantian will have the honour to appear as Ship of the Day. The Cosco Yantian (IMO: 9305594, Port of Registry: Piraeus, Greece) was one of the largest container vessels in gross tonnage about two years ago, together with her sisters: Cosco Hellas, Cosco Ningbo, Cosco Beijing and Cosco Guangzhou. This post-panamax container vessel is 350 metres long, almost 43 metres wide, has a deadweight tonnage of 107,000 and a teu capacity of 9,450. With these dimensions she is "just" one of the larger containervessels currently sailing. The Cosco Yantian is sailing on the AE1-loop which connects Asia and Europe.

The Cosco Yantian is scheduled to arrive this afternoon at the Euromax terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Hamburg.
