Weak market conditions and significant overcapacity in 2013 have made several carriers postpone deliveries of new container ships planned for this year. According to Alphaliner, carriers have postponed deliveries amounting to a total of 200,000 teu to 2014 and further postponement is expected in the months to come.

The number of ships of more than 10,000 teu which will be deployed this year has dropped to a total of 41 units, Alphaliner reports.
