Port of Aarhus sets new Danish record

Early this morning, one of the world's largest container ships, MSC Erica, left Aarhus Harbor after the largest berthing in Denmark's history, where approximately 3,600 containers were lifted over the berth, corresponding to approximately 6,500 TEU from a single ship.

The operation was completed at APM Terminals and progressed on schedule despite the large volumes moved to and from MSC Erica. The ship, which is 398 meters long and 58 meters wide, has a capacity of 19224 TEU.

Harbor Director Jacob Flyvbjerg Christensen is pleased that the container business in Aarhus Harbor is in progress.

"Since the turn of the year, we have been in a very positive development in the container area. And while the Greenlandic Royal Arctic Line stated that the shipping company would like to use Aarhus Harbor instead of Aalborg, MSC docked with the largest amount of goods we have ever seen in Denmark," explains Jakob Flyvbjerg Christensen.

The increasing amount of goods is, according to the director, coupled with positive world trade trends, but also due to the fact that Aarhus Harbor has taken market shares.

"In recent years, we have been able to attract some very strong customers. Therefore, we may get a larger share of the rising freight volumes that are accompanied by rising economic conditions. It is very similar to what we’re seeing abroad, where it is also the biggest harbors that has the greatest progress," says Jakob Flyvbjerg Christensen.
