Top 10 Biggest Cargo Ships in World 2021

Do you know that 90% of the business of international global trade is by water freight vessels?

 

According to the International Chamber of Shipping, there are currently more than 50,000 merchant ships operating in the oceans. Those who import goods export while completing their journey day and night and passing through large oceans.

 

We are also called container ships or cargo ships because they carry thousands of containers. According to their capacity, they are kept in different categories. And these big cargo ships come in the ULVC (Ultra Large Vessel Container) category.

10. EverGreen

Capacity: 20,000 Containers

Length: 400 meters long

Width: 58.8 meters wide

Year: 2018

 

It is also called Ever Golden. And its capacity is 20,000 containers. But sometimes the ships are too big to cause trouble. Recently the ship was passing through Suez Canal. Then the strong winds made the ship rotate so much that both its ends were stuck in the Suez Canal. As you can see in the photos. Today, on March 28, 2021, the ship has passed 6 days and experts are trying their best to get it out. It is stuck in such a way that neither a cargo ship can go nor move here.

 

The problem is that the place it is stuck in is the main route for cargo ships coming to Asia and Europe. Thousands of cargo ships pass through there daily. About an hour after its harvest, around 120 cargo ships were standing in waiting. And due to this the business is losing about 300 million pounds every hour. Talking about daily, there is a loss of $ 9.6 billion every day.

 

And at the same time, the Suez Canal Authority is also incurring a daily loss of $ 14 million.

 

This ship laden with 20,000 containers is so heavy that it has been able to rotate just 30 degrees after only so much effort.



 

Hope that it will be straightened soon and the rest of the cargo ships will be able to come again.
