Cape Town, container ship: Actros 3345 S.

The biggest freight vessel to currently grace the seas has a capacity of more than 18,000 standard-sized containers.

When these giants arrive at the docks, every second counts. Especially in Cape Town, South Africa, where space in the port is at a premium. The gantry cranes there shift as many as 30 containers an hour, lifting them from their initial location and placing them on the trailers of the waiting trucks. With that in mind, it's a good thing that a robust Actros is already awaiting its freight on the pier. Its particularly sturdy frame design doesn't just offer great resistance to the brutal loading procedures, it also delivers very good road-holding and a comfortable ride.
