TOO MANY SHIPS SPOIL THE BOX

The carrying capacity of container ships will increase about 65% within 1977-79, which is getting dangerously close to being analogous to the 1973-77 tanker market. The article presents data on the world fleet of container carrying vessels by type and "TEU" capacity, in service and on order, cumulative growth of fleet since 1957, and age and speed of vessels. Prospects of cutting back capacity are also discussed. Order from: NSFI as No. 14387.
