The Rickmers Group celebrated the naming of the latest addition to its fleet, the 4250-TEU container vessel Marte Rickmers. Marte von Have, wife of lawyer Harro von Have from Hamburg, acted as the sponsor of the vessel. The naming ceremony took place in the presence of more than 100 guests, business partners of the Rickmers Group, customers of Rickmers-Linie and representatives from the shipyard. Under the terms of an eight-year time charter agreement with the French operator CMA CGM, the ship will operate under the name CMA CGM Azure.
