The Hong Kong Seaport Alliance (HKSPA) welcomed the 24,000 teu HMM Gdansk at Kwai Tsing Terminal 7. The vessel is deployed on the Asia – Europe trade and started its voyage on 29 June from Busan, South Korea.
Leonard Fung, managing director of Hongkong International Terminals (HIT), said, “We are excited to welcome the world’s biggest vessel on its maiden call at such challenging times. This is a momentous event for Hong Kong’s maritime industry and HIT, signifying a vote of confidence in our offering and allowing us to capture future opportunities.
“Thanks to increased tonnage and capacity fuelled by technological advances and growing customer demand, more and more mega vessels are now coming into service. Many of them choose to berth at HKSPA members’ terminals, demonstrating our efficiency and capabilities in servicing mega vessels,” Fung added.
