Big but not biggest

Another big container ship arrived today. APL Sentosa is a 151,015 gt, 150,936 dwt (or 150,166 from other sources) vessel, but falls a bit shy of the current Halifax record for container capacity. That record, set by fleet mates APL T. Jefferson and APL A. Lincoln  is 14,414 TEU.
Inexplicably, they are smaller ships at 140,872 gt, 147,966 dwt, however APL Sentosa's declared capacity is 13,892 TEU.

The ship was built in 2014 by Hyundai Samho, and was registered in Singapore, APL's home base. Now however, the ship is registered in Malta, and that was the ship's last port of call.
