What is Container Carrier abt 1400-1700 TEU ?
A container carrier with a capacity of about 1400-1700 TEU (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) refers to a medium-sized container ship designed to transport cargo containers. The TEU is a standard unit of measurement for container ships and represents the carrying capacity based on the number of standard 20-foot-long shipping containers the vessel can hold.
In the context of a 1400-1700 TEU container carrier, the ship would have the capacity to transport approximately 1,400 to 1,700 twenty-foot containers. This size of a container ship is considered to be in the feeder or feedermax category, which typically operates on regional routes, connecting smaller ports to larger container hubs.
These ships play a crucial role in global trade, as they transport goods between ports and facilitate the movement of cargo from major hub ports to smaller, regional ports that are not accessible by larger container vessels.
