      Yes incredible!! But the industry is chancing it's mind on the efficiency of ever larger container ships.
      The same happened with crude oil tankers back in the 1970s. Some of the ULCCs (4-550000 TDW) went directly from the building yard to layup, then to the scrap yards.(The standard now is 320000 TDW to be able to go through the English Channel and Malacca/Singapore Straits fully loaded)
