Grimaldi Lines' Southern Express Service, usually hauls cargo between North Europe and West Africa. But Friday she took up most of the shipping lane between Governors Island and the Brooklyn Bridge, and must have been an impressive sight to people walking over the bridge as she squeaked under it.
From the Grimaldi Lines' web site: "The height of its main decks allows the loading of heavy and out of gauge rolling equipment such as trucks, tractors, double-deck buses and big earthmoving equipment." She ideally holds 2,000 linear meters of cargo plus 2,000 cars or vans and 800 20-foot-long containers.
