Berlin Express - another new one for Hapag-Lloyd

1. Berlin Express, broadside to, readying to turn around and back in alongside Farview Cove.

Another new name in Halifax for Hapag-Lloyd, Berlin Express, arrived July 16 and sailed early July 17. At 88,493 gross tons and 100,019 deadweight, it is among the heavyweights assigned to Halifax as part of the new G6 Alliance. Built in 2003 by Hyundai, Ulsan, it has a capacity of 7506 TEU. Although not on the original list of G6 ships, it is a sister to Dalian Express and Yantian Express, which have already put in appearances. The ship is carrying numerous containers from G6 partners APL , MOL and Hyundai.

2. Inbound, just past the MacKay bridge, stern tug Atlantic Oak moves to starboard side, while forward tug Atlantic Larch exerts some additional braking.
