TROUBLED French shipping giant CMA CGM received the 13,300 TEU Christophe Colomb, the first of eight newbuildings of this size, ordered from South Korea`s DSME (Daewoo) yard back in 2007.
The ship has been assigned to world`s largest liner loop, the Maersk-CMA CGM joint Far East-Europe AE-7/FAL7 service, and will join the Maersk `E`-class vessels, with its average weekly capacity of 14,400 TEU, reports AXS Alphaliner. It has 10 ships including eight 15,200 TEU vessels, said the Paris-based agency.
