NEW YORK (AP) — The largest container ship ever to call on a U.S. east coast port is headed to New Jersey. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced that the 1,200-foot (366-meter) CMA CGM Brazil will dock at the Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal on Saturday. The vessel is carrying cargo that includes clothing, pharmaceuticals, furniture, toys, holiday decorations and food. The container ship was built this year. It sailed from Sri Lanka and berthed at Halifax, Nova Scotia on Thursday before heading to the New York-New Jersey area.
