The last time I was in Savannah (a very, very nice city) it seemed the biggest import was clay for cat litter unloaded from decrepit foreign freighters on the north side of the river across from downtown. That was some time ago. Times change, as well as everything else.

Not a Great Lakes vessel, but ..

Today, the largest container ship to pass through the new Panama Canal made its initial visit to Savannah.

The brand new CMA CGM T. ROOSEVELT (1200 feet long by 158 feet beam) came up the Savannah River to the container ship docks.

Two tugs assisted.

They are expected to unload/reload over 4,000 containers and the ship will depart tomorrow heading to Charleston, Norfolk and New York before returning to China via the Panama Canal later in September.

This is easily the largest vessel I have ever seen.
