Today's visitor at Autoport, Yu Heng Xian Feng was built in 1998 by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki Shipyard and Engine Works as Alioth Leader. It was assigned to NYKCOS and renamed in 2013. It measures 53,240 gross tons and has a capacity of 5,140 cars.. It appeared to be unloading Audis this afternoon.
