Containership deliveries increase in 2013

Containership deliveries increase in 2013

Growth in the post-Panamax sector will be more than 10,000 teu to 48 ships with a capacity of 650,000 teu. This will see the average annual delivery since 2011 rise to around 50 vessels. In the first three quarters of 2012 scrapping remained moderately high and is expected to reach 300,000 teu, or 2% of the cellular fleet that was in operation at the start of this year.

\”With fleet management at the forefront of ship manager\’s minds, supply growth this year has been actively countered with plenty of cellular demolition,\” said Jonathan Roach, Braemar’s container analyst.
