Description

China Shipping Container Lines, the GLOBE

In November 2014, China Shipping Container Lines revealed the construction of a new container ship, the Globe, aiming to take the title for largest vessel on the high seas. Despite having slightly less volume than the Triple E, the CSCL Globe surpasses the older model with a carrying capacity of 19,000 TEU.

The Globe is 400 meters long and 58 meters wide, suggesting that efficient design rather than increased size is the reason for its expanded shipping capacity. The ship also covers the long Asia- Europe trade route. Hyundai Heavy Industries, a South Korean company known for building the first 10,000 TEU container ship in 2010, was responsible for the construction of the record-breaking Globe

The CSCL Globe, a massive container ship with the ability to haul 19,000 TEUs, impressed shippers when it came onto the scene in late 2014. China Shipping worked with the Hyundai shipyard to construct a vessel 400 meters long and 60 meters wide. To help create a visual, just imagine four football fields end to end. Even the best quarterbacks couldn’t get a “Hail Mary” pass across the entire ship! The smart design serves to increase efficiency over the Asia-Europe trade route and brings significant influence to the China Shipping brand.

But while many thought the CSCL Globe would hold the “world’s largest ship” record for a long time to come, competition in the industry has cut China Shipping’s reign short. Less than a month ago, the Mediterranean Shipping Company launched the gigantic MSC Oscar, a vessel with roughly 100 more TEU capacity than the Globe. However, the physical size of the Oscar is slightly smaller than the CSCL Globe, leaving China Shipping with at least some bragging rights to their name.
