COSCO SHIPPING UNIVERSE outbound to sea

As the COVID-19 pandemy restricts our daily lives more and more, Shipping Lines, Ports, Linesmen, Tugs an Pilots will never stop. We are all part in a big chain that keeps moving cargoes anytime, worldwide. Today we may wear face masks, we do not shake hands anymore, and we stay at a safe distance from each other onboard. But we keep them ships moving. This is a short video about the outgoing COSCO SHIPPING UNIVERSE, a 400 meter long ULCS, from Yangtzekanaal, Euromax Terminal to sea.

She has a full China crew. Let’s not forget the sacrifice these ship’s crews are making, since they are no longer allowed ashore or even be relieved at the end of their contract due to the Corona-crisis. They are the real heroes of the logistic chain.
