Biggest container ship sails into Singapore
The world's largest container ship made its maiden call at Singapore's port yesterday.
The 400m-long Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller is longer than the Eiffel Tower laid flat and weighs 60,000 tons empty.
The US$185 million (S$232 million) vessel can carry 18,000 20-foot containers and can transport the equivalent of 182 million iPads, or 144 million pairs of sneakers.
The ship is deployed on a Maersk Line route connecting Asia to Northern Europe via the Suez Canal.
