In recent years, Greek companies have made massive investments in new container ships since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008. From September 2008 onward, Greek owners have been involved in 73 orders of 463000 TEU in new container ships, corresponding to 44 percent of the total capacity ordered by non-operating owners (NOO) during said period, writes Alphaliner.
