World's Largest Container Ship In Felixstowe

7 January 2015, 16:58

A ship carrying more than 19,000 containers has made it's first stop in Europe at Felixstowe.

The CSCL Globe arrived early this afternoon and is 400 meters in length, the same as four football pitches.

It's owned by China Container Shipping Line on its Asia Europe Express Service and carries things like food, clothing and electrical goods from Asia to the UK.

Hundreds of people turned up to see it dock - one woman, Anna Davies, told Heart "it's like watching a ballet, you wouldn't think something so big could turn around so elegantly."  

The ship holds 19,000 containers - which - if lain end to end - would make it all the way to London.
