the future of container vessels

The Economist has an article regarding the future of container vessels.

The currently largest ship, the Emma Maersk, has a capacity of 11000 TEUs (20 foot containers). Future container vessels are planned for up to 18000 TEUs.

Such capacity however implies trouble for the future, since some of the most important canals and shipping routes, let alone ports are not capable to cater to such monsters.

The article is an interesting read and can be found here
