Alphaliner: Globally, ports are not ready for giant ships

The ports of the world will have to improve their efforts in order to become ready to handle the flow of container ships of more than 10,000 teu, which will be deployed in the years to come. Today, only 51 ports are able to handle the large ships, Alphaliner states in a recent analysis.

Today, 51 ports are able to handle ships of more than 10,000 teu. However, with 110 new ships, the number of VLCSs (Very Large Container Ships) to be deployed in the three years to come is very large. This means that a number of ports which are not able to handle the large ships today will have to improve on the increased demands posed by the large ships, the analysis house Alphaliner states.
