Majd, a 3,768 TEU vessel, has joined Milaha's fleet.

Milaha (formerly Qatar Navigation) has acquired its largest container vessel to date, Majd, a 3,768 TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) vessel.
The new vessel will be one of the 17 container vessels that the group operates and is part of the ongoing expansion of the group’s overall fleet.
Majd would be phased into its existing network and gradually replace smaller tonnage.
Milaha currently fully owns and operates a fleet of more than 80 vessels, including liquefied natural gas and product tankers, offshore support vessels, container and bulk vessels, among other vessel categories.
"The new vessel is part of our strategy to optimise our container shipping network with larger tonnage to meet increasing customer demand for capacity and cost efficiency in a highly competitive market," Milaha president and chief executive Abdulrahman Essa al-Mannai said.
Majd was built by STX Shipbuilding Company in South Korea, and has a length overall of 246.87m and a deadweight of 44,985 metric tonnes.
