Glovis Century ties up at pier 9 – and unloads cars

In what I believe is a first, a Pure Car/Truck Carrier has tied up at pier 9. The Glovis Century arrived, rotated 180 degrees and tied up. She is likely unloading project cargo or heavy equipment.

Autoport is occupied as is pier 29/30 where car carriers normally tie up.

UPDATE: Looks like she was unloading Cars. No word on how they are moving off the pier – The On dock rail is blocked by parked cars, so they are either being trucked or Driven off.

She sailed Sunday Night.

Update 09/28: She returned to pier 9 this morning to re-load the cars she left behind.

Tied up in Eastern Passage.

Yesterday brought the Car Carrier Suzuka Express. Operated by Vroon of the Netherlands, she was built in 2010 in Japan. Shes rated at just over 3900 cars, on 10 decks.

Torm Ragnhild also arrived yesterday. She anchored for Gypsy moth inspection, then moved to Imperial Oil to offload.
