SeaIntel: Feeder ships will be next order boom

The next battleground for orders among container carriers will be centered on the smaller feeder vessel segment, projects SeaIntel in a new analysis. This indicated by the age profile and the current orderbook, even though the market today is struggling with a vast overcapacity.

After several years with scores of orders for ultra-large container vessels of more than 18,000 teu, the time has now come for orders in other container segments. In an all-time low market with far too many ships and rock-bottom demand, it seems unlikely that carriers will order more mega-vessels in the coming years, but this does not apply to one of the smaller segments, namely the feeder vessels, notes SeaIntel in a new analysis.
