The OOCL Germany in Shenzhen

Last week Mr. Jan Buelck (Managing Director a. hartrodt Hong Kong) was invited by the Port of Hamburg Marketing Hong Kong to visit the OOCL Germany in Shenzhen.

The OOCL Germany belongs to the 21 thousand TEU class which holds currently the world record as biggest container ship in the world. The OOCL Hong Kong was the first vessel of a series of six identical sister vessels, one of them the OOCL Germany.

It was an honor that Mr. S.C. Tai, Head of OOCL’s Fleet Management Department, architect and designer of the vessel was on board to join the visit.

Another highlight: Mr. Patrick Lam, Managing Director of YICT and President of the Shenzhen Ports Association, joined the reception and gave a welcome speech at the terminal.
