Jiangnan Changxing delivers XIN XU ZHOU (4,738 teu) to CSCL

China Shipping Container Line (CSCL) has taken delivery this week of the 4,738 teu XIN XU ZHOU, the sixth of eight small overpanamax ships which the carrier ordered in June 2008 at Shanghai Jiangnan Changxing Shipbuilding.

CSCL originally ordered this series as 260m long panamax-beam vessels with an intake of 4,250 teu. The Chinese carrier however later revised the orders into slightly larger ships and negotiated delivery deferrals at the same time.

The XIN XU ZHOU follows the XIN WEN ZHOU which was delivered earlier this month and it it destined to join one of CSCL domestic intra-China services.

The XIN XU ZHOU is named after the town of Xuzhou, also known by its ancient name Pengcheng. The city is located in China’s Jiangsu province.
