The world’s largest container vessel, the CSCL Globe, set off Monday on its maiden voyage to Europe from Shanghai, ship owner China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) said, AFP reported. The giant 400-meter long, 60-meter wide vessel sailed from the eastern Chinese city’s Yangshan port. The vessel is the first of five 19,100-TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) container ships that CSCL ordered in 2013 from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries and was delivered in November, according to CSCL.
