FRANCE-TRANSPORT-SHIPPING

The chef works in the kitchens of the Marco Polo, flying a British flag and said to be the world's biggest container ship by French owners CMA CGM, moored in the port of Le Havre, western France, early on December 19, 2012. The Marco Polo was given its champagne christening in the Belgian port of Zeebrugge on December 18, 2012. The ship, which is 396 metres (yards) long -- the length of four football fields -- was built in South Korea and was to head back to Asia after a stop in France. It is said to be the largest container in the world measured by capacity, as it can hold 16,020 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit containers) -- or 97 kilometres of containers lined up one by one.
