Leverkusen Express

Hapag-Lloyd's Leverkusen Express sailed out west of George's Island this afternoon to give good clearance to the tanker Torm Esbjerg (see post) anchored in the stream.
Hapag and OOCL provide ships for the same service, although OOCL's are post Panamax and carry about 5400TEUs, the Hapag vessels such as this one carry 4359 TEUs. Leverkusen Express was built in 1991 and has a very distinctive off-set control station on its bridge.
