Containerships just gets bigger!|
In year 2000, there was only 6,800 container ships.
Average size was 4,500 to 7,500 TEU!
In 2010 - 2012, the first 84, 13,000 to 14,000 TEU, post Panamax ships will be introduced!
Game Changer indeed!
(Meaning ship breakers are going to "enjoy booming business"! Read Indian ship breakers!)
Reinvestment, re routing shipping vessels will be big business!
Imagine, the practical doubling of vessel size, could see a large number of OBSOLETE vessels, probably the larger 1/4 of the vessels used in pan Europe, pan American - Asian routes. Pretty unlikely to affect FEEDER CONTAINER ships!
With the near monopolization of trade - hypermarket, OEM with China, and South Asian Trade Route States, and Automobile, components, electronics, IT with Asian Trade Route States, it's unlikely to have dramatic increase in Containershipments!
MEANING - investing in berth that can handle the larger vessels!
Some cool information for the reader:-
Post Panamax - maximum 12,000 TEU
Post Suezmax - maximum 14,000 TEU
Malaccan max - maximum 18,000 TEU
Shipping company consolidation coming?
Tremendous need for SHIP BUILDING FINANCING.
Financial companies BIG OPPORTUNITY to buy/break obsolete vessel, re introduce new vessel for leasing! Shipping Trust business!
