Container ships

How to choose this product

The container ship is a specialized vessel that carries all its cargo in either 20-foot or 40-foot intermodal containers. The capacity of a container ship is usually expressed in 20-foot equivalent units (TEU), i.e., the number of containers of that size it can carry.

Container ships vary greatly in size, depending on the service they provide: major port calls, short-range shipping and feeder runs. They are also differentiated by the presence or absence of cranes.

Applications

Different types of container ship are designed for varying needs. There are specialized ships for refrigerated containers, geared feeder vessels able to operate in ports without port cranes and large container ships without cranes.

Technologies

These ships have one or more cargo holds equipped with rails to guide containers into well-defined rows during the loading process. Holds are closed by hatch covers, onto which more containers can be loaded and secured. Containers stowed on deck must be secured with lashing, locking and buttress systems.

How to choose

Container capacity is the main consideration. Route, operating zone and range, the need for deck cranes and many other factors also must be taken into account.

Advantages

- Intermodal transport
- Efficiency

Disadvantages

- Only suitable for containerized cargo
