CMA CGM LaperouseToday's Ship of the Day is the CMA CGM Laperouse (IMO: 9454412, Port of Registry: Marseille). The Laperouse is currently one of the largest vessels in CMA CGM's fleet with a maximum teu capacity of 13,344. The vessel is 365 meters long and 51 meters wide. She was built in 2009 by Daewoo Heavy Industries, Korea. The vessel's design is comparable to the latest builds of containervessels with the superstructure located midships. One can argue about the looks of this type of vessel, however the design ensures for better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. The Laperouse has seven sisterships, amongst which are the CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci and CMA CGM Corte Real. She is deployed in CMA CGM's FAL1 loop connecting China and North-Western Europe.

The CMA CGM Laperouse arrived last night at the ECT Delta Terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Bremerhaven.
