$1.1 billion in new ships that won't fit Panama Canal

Tuesday, August 18, 2015


Last week shipping line Maersk announced the signing of a $1.1 billion newbuilding contract for nine vessels with a 14,000 TEU capacity.

The vessels are designed for flexibility, but they may not be as flexible as some might expect. They are a little too wide to fit in the newly expanded Panama Canal.
