Aliança Unveils 3,800-TEU Container Ship in Brazil

Christening of the Sebastião Caboto in Santos.

Aliança has unveiled its new container ship, Sebastião Caboto, at the Terminal Maritimo de Passageiros in Brazil’s Port of Santos.

The vessel is the first in a series of four identical container ships with a capacity of 3,800 20-foot-equivalent units apiece. Each ship is fitted with 500 refrigerated plugs. All four ships will be deployed by the container line in the Brazilian cabotage service. After its delivery at Shanghai Shipyard Co. in January 2013, the first Brazilian port of call for the Sebastião Caboto was Manaus in February.
