Maersk help on the way - to be updated

The container ship CPO Miami is due in Halifax May 12 to take on the Maersk containers from the broken down Stadt Cadiz.
It only took on its present name in March after a long term charter to United Arab Shipping Corp as UASC Khor Fakkan. Built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2009 as Khor Fakkan it added the "UASC" prefix immediately after launching. On conclusion of its charter to UASC the ship returned to its owners, Reederei Claus-Peter Offen (hence the CPO name) and entered the spot market for short term charters. Its most recent port call was Charleston.
Measuring 41,358 grt, 51,737 dwt it has a capacity of 4255 TEU (including 560 reefers) - more than enough capacity for the boxes offloaded at Halterm by Stadt Cadiz.

This post will be updated as photos become available.
