They are the queens of the oceans and the essential form of transport in international trading. Container ships handle around 90 percent of the world’s goods trade. According to the ICS, around 50,000 merchant ships are plying around the globe – 5,000 of them are called container ships. In our first edition of the Maritime Gallery, we take a look at these giants and present to you the ten largest container ships by TEU from the year 2022.
