The Port Of Felixstowe has recently handled its 100th million TEU since it opened back in 1966.
The record passing container was loaded at Berth 8, which is the newest of the the port’s four berths, creating a major milestone for the UK’s largest container port.
Commenting at a ceremony to mark the occasion, UK Maritime Minister Robert Courts MP said:
“The tens of thousands of maritime workers who keep our critical goods and supplies moving are the backbone of our freight sector, and kept this country’s supplies moving throughout the pandemic.”
“Congratulations to the Port of Felixstowe on the 100 millionth TEU being loaded, which is a landmark moment for the UK’s busiest container port.”
