Containership deliveries increase in 2013 to beat 2008 record year

Containership delivery is on the rise in 2013 with shipyards set to deliver 1.7 million teu, expanding the global fleet 9.5 percent, which surpasses levels reached in 2008, the last record high since the economic recession with 1.5 million teu delivered against this year’s 1.3 million teu.

According to London shipbrokers Braemar Seascope the post Panamax segment of vessels of more than 10,000 teu will grow to total 48 ships of 650,000 teu bringing an average annual delivery in the period from 2011 to 50 units or more.

Scrapping has remained moderately high in the three quarters of 2012 compared to the highest year of demolition in 2009 at 370,000 teu.

By end of year it is estimated to reach the 300,000 teu level which represents two percent of the cellular fleet as of January 1, 2012.

Said Braemar container analyst Jonathan Roach: “With fleet management at the forefront of ship manager’s minds, supply growth this year has been actively countered with plenty of cellular demolition.”
