It is the first time CU Lines has ordered from Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding. With the signing of the two 7,000 teu containerships, Waigaoqiao has maintained its position as the world’s largest intermediate container shipbuilder, said Waigaoqiao.
With the addition of the two 7,000 teu containerships, the order on hand of the same type of vessel for Waigaoqiao is reaching 30.
Earlier in February, CU Lines ordered two 2,700 teu containerships at CSSC’s Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard.
