Arab boxship at Southampton

Yet another  brand new container ship has called at Southampton.  MV Malik Al Ashtar (2012/140,500gt) arrived on 21 May on her maiden voyage from South Korea. The 13,100 TEU vessel  is one of nine A13 class ships ordered from Samsung Shipbuilding in 2008.

Operated by the Kuwait-based United Arab Shipping Company (UASC), their ships will become a more familiar sight following a new co-operative agreement between UASC, CMA CGM and China Shipping on the Asia to Northern Europe trade routes.
