At 11,000 TEU, the 
347-metre long ship is not only the largest ship handled by Gulftainer since its inception in 1976, but also one of the largest ever handled by any port in the region.

On hand to welcome the massive vessel was Gulftainer’s Commercial Manager, Keith Nuttall, and Terminal Manager, Dag Froehmcke, who made a ‘maiden call’ presentation to the ship’s master, Captain Wilhelm Cubasch, on Friday to commemorate the historic occasion.
