    can we still call this a ''superstructure''?
    it's more a pole with some side windows

    Much the same like this.
    She had here 19.039 teu on board.
    On other images you can see some places to stack them. And maybe she could hade 2 layers extra on top.
    If you say i count about 4500 containers on deck ,
    You had count 40ft contsiners. You.only aee 40ft containers at deck.
    And 40ft containers is 2 teu. If you cant 4500 containers, then is that 9000teu.

    In theory she can load 20568 teu, but she wil never only load 20ft boxes . 20 and 40 ft she can loadsay 10.560 boxes and complete full, so not the 20.568, but the space she used for the load is 20568 teu.

    Some type containers are capeable for 11 high stacking, even when they are loaded to ther max weight.
    The change is that below deck they are also stacked 11 high

    A teu is a size box of the standard size Ombugge explain. The 6 meter box. But a 40ft box is also 1 container, but counts as 2 teu. 2x6 meter is 12 meter.

    In a port they can set many cranes on a vessel, just depends how long the vessel is. I had seen them with 7 cranes for 1 vessel. In this case for rotterdam there are multiple stacks on board to unload. Those giants just sail to a few ports on a roundtrip

    I know there are some storage of containers in the hull/below deck, but what in the name of God will she look like with 20.000+ containers on board??
    As on these images, I count about 4500 over deck, and how there are space for 16.000 below deck is not understandable for me.
    (My numbers are not dead correct, but in the vicinity).

    Impressive pictures though, that's a fact

    Hiccup! I've worked through your answers and digested them. Many thanks to both of you. So those differences, though slight, help to explain why it is said that TEU's are only an approximate estimate of load.
    With weight and dimensions to take into account, loading modern container ships must be a technical nightmare! Stevedores of old would be flabbergasted.
