What a big gal!

I am covering transport technologies in Globalization now and an article on this beautiful container ship caught my eye as I was reading the newspapers.

It is on Emma Maersk, the world's biggest container ship in the world, with a capacity of 11000 TEUs!! Oh my goodness! That's very big!

The largest ship before Emma was Shenzhen shipping line's OOCL with 8068 TEUs.

Check out the beauty!

Updated: 6 Nov 2006




Christmas is around the corner and according the the graph that I placed in 2006 Sem 2 paper Q7, exports from Asia to other regions, especially Europe and US, usually hit sky-high around this time.

Here are a few articles on people in Europe who are veru concerned with the huge export of goods Emma Maersk is bringing over from China.
