APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles set a new world record for the terminal and the Port of Los Angeles on June 18, 2020, handling 18,465 container moves on the MSC Isabella in 6 days, using 12 shifts of labor with a productivity level of 128.2 berth moves per hour and 30 cranes moves per hour.. Container moves are described simply as a crane lift from or to a cargo vessel using a quay crane. Container sizes in this case vary from 20, 46 and 45. In the case of 40 and 45 containers, they are registered as single crane lifts. However 20’ containers are generally “twin lifts” where two containers are lifted by the quay crane at the same time.

The 23,656 TEU, MSC Isabella is named for the eldest daughter of MSC USA President & CEO Fabio Santucci and is deployed on the Pearl TP6 string, operating in the 2M Alliance by MSC and Maersk. One of the largest ships in the world, the MSC Isabella is part of a new class of 23,000+ TEU sustainable container ships recently added to the MSC global shipping network. MSC Isabella’s arrival in Los Angeles marks its first time calling at a Western Hemisphere container port. The vessel is one of the new, energy efficient ships from MSC’s Gulsun-class container vessels with a low carbon footprint – and whose length exceeds the Eiffel Tower and can carry the equivalent of 384 million pairs of shoes.

The Pearl TP6 is the premier main line service for Maersk and MSC from Far East Asia to the US West Coast.

APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles is the largest privately-operated container terminal in North America at 484 acres, handling 2.5 million TEU in 2019.
