MINE IS BIGGER THAN YOURS

Madrid MaerskOcean carriers continue their game of “one-upmanship.”  MOL inaugurated the 20,179 TEU MOL Triumph on March 27, Maersk followed suit with the 20,568 TEU Madrid Maersk on April 11, and on the horizon is OOCL’s 21,200 TEU vessel the OOCL Hong Kong.  These ships are massive and will be placed in service on the Asia-Europe corridor.  There will be a trickle down as 15,000-18,000 TEU ships on the lane are re-deployed in the TransPacific trade.
