The largest containerized cargo vessel to call at a Canadian port has arrived in Halifax Harbour.
The Halifax Port Authority says CMA CGM Brazil berthed at around midnight.
She’s 366 metres long with a 15,072 TEU capacity.
PSA Halifax is the only port in Eastern Canada that can accommodate these larger ultra-class vessels.
In July, it received a new ship-to-shore super post-Panamax crane, bringing the total number to five.
The port authority has also been working on extending the south end terminal so it has the capacity to accommodate two ultra-class ships at a time.
