APL Salalah is due to arrive at Halterm in the pre dawn hours of Sunday morning and  will become the record holder for the largest containership to call in Halifax. ZIM Rotterdam Holds the record now at 10,064 TEU, and set it with her first arrival in June 2017. She and her sisters are now regular callers.

APL Slaah, now owned by french Shipping line CMA-CGM comes in at 10,960 TEU, handily beating the previous record. She is currently set to sail again after dark, so good pictures are unlikely.

Sunday Update – the Walkway along the Sea side of halter was gated shut, SO not even a photo from there was possible.
