Port Everglades recently received the Mediterranean Shipping Co.’s MSC Rachele, which is expected to help the port reach a record number of cargo containers moved across the port's docks from a single ship, port officials announced last week.

The port’s three new Super Post-Panamax gantry cranes and one existing Post-Panamax crane helped unload about 4,849 containers, or the equivalent of 9,000 20-foot equivalent units, from the ship, according to a port press release.

Port Everglades' previous one-ship record was set in August 2021, when nearly 3,000 containers were unloaded from another MSC ship.

Florida East Coast Railway provides service to the Port Everglades.
