Meta makes up the slack for ACL

Atlantic Container Line chartered the Meta to take up some extra cargo that was not handled by the usual ships. Winter weather delays may be at the root of it, but ACL is expecting to bring more cargo through Halifax as their new ships come on line, so perhaps this is a sign of those additional bookings.

Meta was first here March 6 on the westbound leg, and tied up this morning as the last stop on the eastbound leg.
Built in 2001 as Meta it was renamed on launch as Maersk Perth. It carried that name until 2006 when it reverted to Meta for owners Stefan Patjens Reederei GmbH of Drokerstern, Germany. The 32,322 grt, 39,128 dwt ship has a capacity of 2732 TUE (including 450 reefers) and was built by Stoc. Szczecinska SA of Poland.
