30 "superjumbo" container vessels expected to launch in 2023

The generation of megamax vessels with a capacity above 21,000 teu are being replaced by a marginally larger type known as "superjumbo" vessels, writes Alphaliner. 30 of the colossal vessels are expected to be delivered in 2023.

The container vessel Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller, which Maersk received in June 2013, was at the time the first and largest ship in the Megamax class, MGX-23 ships, writes Alphaliner.

After a period of only six years with ultra-large container vessels, known as MGX-23, time is running out for this generation of vessels with a capacity above 21,000 teu.

Instead, the slightly larger MGX-24 vessels, also known as "superjumbo" vessels, are expected to take the lead as the largest container vessels on the seas and major trade routes.
