Ships & Shipbuilding

Ship and shipbuilding news as it pertains to the shipping industry, such as orders for newbuilds by container lines, new ship designs, mega-ships or maritime accidents. Some of the world's largest shipbuilders are Hyundai Heavy Industries, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and CSBC.
