MV Basle Express

Despite it being the shortest day the last new building of the year to call at Southampton left in glorious sunshine. MV Basle Express (2012/142,295gt) arrived on 20 December, the third of Hapag-Lloyd’s new class of 13,200TEU ships to enter service this year.

With a steady flow of  brand new container carriers visiting Southampton throughout the year peaking with four maiden arrivals in December, next year promises to be even more interesting with many of the world’s shipping lines investing in larger and more efficient tonnage.
