The biggest cargo ship in the world, the Madrid Maersk, docked at Sines Port last Friday, becoming the biggest cargo ship ever to dock in Portugal.

With a capacity to carry over 20,000, 20-foot containers, the huge vessel generally links Europe to the Far East.

Launched last year, it is one of the most modern ships on international shipping routes, and is due to unload 4000 containers in Portugal before continuing its journey to northern Europe.
