What a whoppa!

Oct 23, 2017
On August 22, the Panama Canal welcomed the largest capacity vessel to ever transit its expanded locks, the CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt. The Neopanamax containership was on a voyage from Asia to the US East Coast. 

The CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt has a Total TEU Allowance (TTA) of 14,855 and measures 365.9 metres in length and 48.2 metres in beam. To put the scale of this huge ship into perspective, its length is roughly the equivalent of laying end-to-end two Great Pyramids of Giza, four Big Bens, or eight Statues of Liberty.
