Video From TPM: Maersk’s Skou Discusses Triple Es, Outlook

Maersk Line, the world’s largest ocean carrier, will deploy the first five of its so-called Triple E vessels this year, CEO Soren Skou told some 2,000 attendees of The Journal of Commerce’s TPM Conference.

The ships, capable of carrying 18,000 20-foot-equivalent units, will be the largest vessels in the history of container shipping. Part of a 20-ship order, the vessels will be deployed in the Asia-Europe trade

Skou discussed the Triple Es, their impact on capacity and his outlook for the global container markets during a Q&A session after his TPM keynote address on March 4.
