A China-made ocean-going container ship has set the record for the largest vessel to sail on China's Yangtze River.

The ship is 400 meters long and has a capacity of 20,000 TEUs. "The ship's safe cruise on the busy waterway of the Yangtze River signifies the water transport capacity of the Yangtze River deep-water channel," said Hua Xi, an official with the Yangtze River Maritime Safety Administration.
