GCT Deltaport welcomes largest vessel to call Canada

Last Friday, GCT Canada welcomed the largest container vessel to call the country at Deltaport. The Hapag-Lloyd 13,200 TEU “Antwerpen Express” has been deployed as part of THE Alliance’s Transpacific mainline West Coast PN3 service. The Hamburg class vessel is the first of a progressive ship upsizing for the service. Not only will this new fleet of vessels offer more slots for importers and exporters to grow in the market, but it will do so with an improved environmental footprint. GCT Deltaport hosts the largest ships to call the Port of Vancouver. The facility has recently completed major construction on its $280 million Intermodal Yard Reconfiguration project that increases rail capacity by over 50% within the existing footprint, enabling even better handling of big ship surge volumes. GCT Deltaport is the Antwerpen Express’s first-port-of-call directly from the Far East (Hong Kong-Yantian-Ningbo- Shanghai-Pusan-Vancouver).
