Containership Orders Increase

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Containership orders are increasing at a dramatic rate, analysis from Braemar’s Seascope’s research division has revealed.

Figures show that since the beginning of this year 52 containerships of 10,000TEU or larger have been ordered – compared to just 10 vessels from this sizeband for the whole of 2010 and zero of this size in 2009.
