Even Port of Miami will technically be able to handle these after the dredging, but none would ever possibly come here. Its just a matter of having a 200 foot gentry cranes, and we have two, although these ships are generally served by no less than 4 or 5 adjacent cranes simultaneously.

Actually, theres no where near enough room for them to turn around here, and I doubt they could back up.

Maersk stops
the super-container



Genoa - Maersk Line, the world's first company in the container sector, is considering not to exercise the option to build 10 mega-ships of 18 000 TEUs from Korean shipyards Daewoo. The item circulating in the corridors of the international shipping from the end of December, but according to the German press, the company has already decided to freeze the operation, although yesterday was contacted by the nineteenth century, the Maersk explained: "We are not on changes' order, everything goes according to plan. " Unless twists, the node will be released on February 27, with the publication of the annual budget of the company. However, according to what he said last February at the former Maersk Eivind Kolding presenting the maxi-order, exercise the third option on the contract "Triple E" (a total of 30 ships of 18,000 TEUs, with a value of over $ 6 billion) there were "many unanswered questions."

Behind the choices Maersk discusses these days there would only trade even if such assessments after the incident of the "Concordia" there are many experts in marine engineering and maritime economy who are wondering what is the impact of insurance and Environment possible accidents involving these mega-ships. Large units, large economies of scale: the principle applies to cruise ships as the container. The "Project Triple E" Maersk, which from 2013 will put into circulation the largest ships in the world, aims to bring this concept to the extreme. Last year, Thomas Knudsen, head of the company's Asia-Pacific Region, said openly that the policy of large economies of scale will corner the companies that do not have the size to hold this competition. A few days before the tragedy of Lily, an expert like Andrew Chamberlain, Holman Fenwick Willan office in London, warned that the industry may soon have the "BP's platform" to say that a disaster of a mega-ship had not yet occurred , and that no one was able to evaluate the consequences.

According to Nigel Fitzgerald, insurer Crum & Foster "is true: bigger ships equals fewer trips. Less travel less accidents. But the size of new units Maersk increase the risk of "catastrophic loss" exponentially. Not so much for the value of the ship itself, but because of the transported goods: difficult - says Fitzgerald - being able to quantify the aggregate exposure to the value of a unit that carries 18 thousand containers. It is not difficult to imagine that, in the case went to the bottom of one of these ships, the insurers would have to pay damages dozens of requests. " There is also a problem of environmental safety, as revealed by Chamberlain: The largest ship is now in circulation from 14,500 TEUs. The disaster of recent times has been more on board the "MSC Napoli", in 2007, which had embarked 4,600 and a deadweight of 62 000 tons.

The question is whether Chamberlain opens today we have the means to secure the wreck of a ship which was almost four times the capacity of the "Napoli" and a deadweight of 165 thousand tons. The only answer, unfortunately, can get from the emergency management of the "Concordia" Isola del Giglio, cruise ships, but the first mega-shipwreck history.

Maersk bets on cold storage to boost land transportation business
Jan 13, 2020
Excerpt

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Maersk <MAERSKb.CO>, the world's biggest shipping company, plans to focus on premium services such as cold storage and digital solutions to avoid competing with its own freight-forwarding clients as it expands in the land transportation business.

Since announcing a new strategy in 2016, which included selling its oil and gas business, Maersk has focused less on market share and more on profitability and cost-cutting in its container and logistics business.

It now hopes to see its terminal and inland logistics operations, the non-Ocean business, make up a bigger part of its future earnings. In 2018, the ocean transport business accounted for almost 80% of core earnings.

While Maersk moves around one in five containers shipped at sea, it handles land transportation from ports to warehouses and distribution centers for less than a quarter of its customers.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, chief executive of APM Terminals and member of Maersk's executive board, Morten Engelstoft, said Maersk had room to "catch up" with rival shippers in its land transportation business.

"Compared to the other shipping lines, our share of the inland business is lower percentage-wise," Engelstoft said.

Rather than investing in freight trucks and threatening the core business of large freight forwarding companies - many of whom are Maersk's own customers - Engelstoft pointed to so-called 'cold chains' as a more attractive investment.

Transporting goods in a 'cold chain' means keeping perishable goods, like fruits or meat, refrigerated throughout the entire journey in order to keep goods fresh for longer.

Excerpt
May 11, 2021

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Shipping group Maersk said on Tuesday it expects average returns on invested capital towards 2025 to be significantly above recent years, propelled by high demand for containers to meet a surge in consumer orders.

The Danish company said it aims to bolster supply chain logistics for clients such as Puma and Walmart as it spurs a transformation that began before the pandemic.

Maersk Chief Executive Soren Skou told investors at a Capital Markets Day he expects return on invested capital (ROIC) - a measure of how well a company uses its capital to generate profits - above 12% between 2021 and 2025, compared with average returns of 2.3% in the previous five years.
