15 GIGANTIC Transport and Container Ships

Amazing Stuff

As much as 90 percent of goods that are traded around the world are transported by sea as it offers the most cost efficient way of moving items across great distances… but there’s a limit to how many ships each port can handle at once. To overcome this, companies are building vessels that dwarf those that were relied on just a few decades ago, and they’re now some of the largest vehicles ever designed. There are limits to how far they can go, though, as a result of the fact that most important routes involve passing through manmade canals and that each port has a depth limit, so they’re turning to technological solutions to cram more onto each vessel than ever before too. It’s time to delve into the backbone of the world economy as we take a look at 15 gigantic transport ships.
