The Port of Malaga receives, during this week, a total of 5 container ships, belonging to the main shipping companies that operate in the port area: CMA-CGM, Maersk Line, MSC and Hapag Lloyd – April 14, 2021 The increase in this type of operations is due, in part, to the saturation generated in the Suez Canal, revealing the capacity of the Port of Malaga to face
this type of contingencies and to accommodate the large container ships that currently exist: up to 400 meters in length. Featured operations Since yesterday, the CMA-CGM ship ‘APL Mexico City’ has been shipping 2,300 full containers bound for the United Kingdom. For its part, the Norwegian company Maersk Line, will bring 2 ships to the port area ‘Kota Loceng’ (April 14) and ‘Maersk Calabar’ (April 15). To these must be added the coincidence, next Saturday, April 17, of the ship ‘Kotor Bay’ belonging to MSC and the ‘Rio Grande Express’ of Hapag Lloyd that will also carry out operations at Pier 9 of the port area. The Port of Malaga expects the important operation to continue at Pier 9 terminal with the arrival of another 5 container ships next week. Other freight traffic This week, the solid bulk traffic continues with the shipment of 9,500 tons of cement on board the ship ‘Nordanhav’, the loading of 3,600 tons of dolomite on board the ship ‘Hav Pike’ and the output of 6,900 tons of olive pit on board the ‘Tevfik Bey’ at docks 6 and 7 of the port area.
