Container ships of 12,000 teu and larger: overview of existing ships and orders by vessel type.

Container ships of 12,000 teu and larger: overview of existing ships and orders by vessel type.

In the wake of the imminent delivery of the world’s largest containership and following the recent frenzy of orders, a quick summary of the global fleet of ultra-large container ships might be useful: linervision is happy to present here below an overview of all container ships of 12,000 teu or larger.
Please note that a number of orders with unclear status, as well as some letters of intent and options, have been excluded from the list. Furthermore, some very similar but not necessarily identical series of ships have been summarized under one type. Since shipyards tend to use identical superstructure modules, hull forms and engine room designs across various series of ships, the differentiation of vessels into individual types will always include a certain degree of liberty.
The ship types are listed by nominal teu intake in descending order. Ship types marked with (NPX) are neo-panamax-vessels, meaning the vessels will be able to transit the Panama Canal, once the larger new canal locks will be in operation. The remaining vessels are neo-overpanamax-vessels, which will exceed the maximum dimensions permitted in the canal, even after its expansion.
