Wall to Wall at PSA

 Container traffic numbers must be doing well at PSA Halifax, with MSC ships as frequent callers these days, adding to the regular callers. Today was no exception with three ships occupying the piers. Oceanex Sanderling was at the stern ramp at Pier 41 and Tampa Trader for ZIM at the south part of berth 41.

  MSC Sariska was occupying Pier 41, with only one crane available to decant some cargo to reduce draft en route from Sines, Portugal to Montreal.

I gave the 4437 TEU ship a full write up when it called here in August: MSC Sariska

The former Maersk ship still looks sleek (if not Majestic) despite its 31 years of service.

PSA will be busy again tomorrow with regular callers Maersk Penang and  ZIM Shekou, the latter postponed from today.

PSA worldwide handled 86.6 million TEU in 2020 with Singapore alone accounting fore 36.6mn TEU. That makes Halifax a minuscule player in PSA's portfolio of ports around the world.
