Largest ship ever to call at Port of New York and New Jersey expected today

On July 26, 2017, the new 14,414 TEUs CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt began its voyage by leaving Asia's shipyards to begin its rotation on the South Atlantic Express Service (SAX) from Hong Kong to Shanghai.

Making its way to the port of Panama City, where the Panama Canal opened new locks last summer, the ship stopped over on August 21st before reaching the port of Colón a day later on August 22nd.

The Theodore Roosevelt is scheduled to head north to Norfolk, Virginia on August 28th, head south to visit Savannah on August 31st before looping up to Charleston on September 2nd.

This will be its last stop before reaching the Port of New York and New Jersey for the inauguration of the Bayonne Bridge on September 7, 2017.

This New York-New Jersey port call has been organized specifically to celebrate the new Bayonne Bridge. The elevated bridge and deepened channel will lead to a new era of larger container ship visits.
