Ever wonder what two Washington Monuments, eight Statue of Liberties, or four South Carolina State Houses stacked on top of each other would look like?
Yeah, we didn’t either – until 1,200 feet was put into perspective.
Back in spring of 2017, the COSCO Development, measuring in at the same length of the CMA CGM Brazil, called on the Port of Charleston, claiming fame as the East Coast’s largest vessel to date. However, due to its 15,072-TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) capacity, the CMA CGM Brazil is setting sail to steal that title.
Because of SC Ports’ deep + wide harbor, large machines and efficient operations, the CMA CGM Brazil crew chose the Wando Welch Terminal as its last port of call (a stop for supplies, fuel, repairs, transmission of cargo, etc.) in the U.S. before sailing overseas.
The vessel is expected to arrive at the Wando Welch Terminal on Sun., Sept. 20, but SC Ports will update its social media channels with the exact time of its arrival closer to the date. The public is invited + encouraged to come welcome its arrival with cameras in hand. 🤳
You can track the CMA CGM Brazil’s trek to the Lowcountry here. (Last time we checked, it was docked in Halifax, Canada. 🇨🇦)
