Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Osama Rabie announced that the latest and largest container ship in the world, EVER ACME crossed the new Suez Canal last Friday on its trip from Malaysia to the Netherlands.
According to the protocol followed by the SCA in dealing with giant ships crossing the canal for the first time, Rabie delegated two captains to board the container ship EVER ACME and welcome its crew. They also presented the captain with a lovely souvenir.
In his statement, he stressed that the successive transit of the largest container ship through the Suez Canal is a testament to the waterway’s ability to receive current and future generations of the global fleet of container ships.
