On February, 23rd container truck CMA CGM BAUDELAIRE 300 m in length (flag of Germany). has approached to the 42th berth. There would be nothing special if not to take into account the sizes of the container truck. This is the first vessel of postpanamax type, which has moored to the terminal operated by the company «Brooklin-Kiev port». Until present time there were only feeding vessels processing. As far as such moorage became possible, the port of Odesa had executed the first stage of dredging works of the restricted areas of Khlebnaya harbour, in particular the second reach of the Zavodskaya harbour channel.

It is insignificant that during the first call of the container truck it was shipped to the container terminal «Brooklin-Kiev port» a small volume of containers. The main thing is that in Khlebnaya harbour has got a waterway for modern container trucks calling.
