New record for ECT and Rotterdam
Recently the 14,000-TEU

MSC Daniela became the largest containership to have ever left the port of Rotterdam fully laden - a European record.

The ship was handled at the ECT Delta Terminal, the largest container-handling facility in Rotterdam. In recent years, ECT has invested heavily in people and resources in order to ensure the good and efficient handling of mega ships.

“It took quite some skill and expertise on the part of our customer MSC, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and ECT to successfully handle the MSC Daniela,” said Jan Westerhoud, President of ECT. “We are proud of demonstrating the company’s capabilities.”

The MSC Daniela and her sister ships, all of which are operated by the Swiss shipping line MSC, are among the largest containerships in the world. Rotterdam is one of the few ports in Europe where ships of this magnitude can be fully loaded.
