Just a few months prior to inserting the world's largest container ship - Maersk Line's Triple-E, named after late shipowner Maersk McKinny-Moeller, CEO Nils Smedegaard admits that the timing of the launch of the massive ships could have been better. The statement came Thursday in an interview on american network CNBC.
"These ships constitute a faily large addition of capacity, but they'll be inserted gradually. This is not the best time to add more capacity, which is why we're also pulling capacity out of the market. Some of the smaller ships will be taken out," he said.
