Cosco Beijing The Cosco Beijing (IMO: 9308508, Port of Registry: Piraeus) is still one of the largest container vessels measuring in gross tonnage nowadays, together with her sisters: Cosco Hellas, Cosco Ningbo, Cosco Yantian and Cosco Guangzhou. However since the launch in 2006 and 2007 of Maersk PS-class vessels (amongst which are the Emma Maersk, Estelle Maersk and Eleonora Maersk) and Cosco's own 10,000 teu vessels Cosco Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and America and more recently MSC's 14,000 TEU vessels (amongst which is the MSC Danit)the Cosco Beijing's position on the list of largest containerships is declining.

The Beijing is 350 metres long, almost 43 metres wide, has a deadweight tonnage of 107,000 and a teu capacity of 9,450. She is currently sailing on the AE1-loop which connects Asia and Europe.

The Cosco Beijing is scheduled to arrive later this evening at the ECT Terminal, Rotterdam, with the last port of call at Singapore. The vessel will leave in about 36 hours for Felixstowe, Hamburg and Antwerp before returning to the Far East.
