Global shipping trade increasing
August 2015 – When it comes to the largest containership sailing the oceans, shipping companies worldwide are competing for leadership. At a length of 395 metres, a width of 59 metres and a loading capacity of 19,244 standard containers, ‚MSC Zoe’ will soon lose its number one ranking as the biggest containership worldwide. Various Asian shipyards are already building ships with a loading capacity of 21,000 TEU containers. At the same time, logistics demands are rising: Long transport routes as well as import and export regulations require the best possible utilisation of specific pallets and product packaging.
