World's Largest Container Ships

Hyundai Merchant Marine Co. plans to deploy the world's largest container ships in its Asia-North America routes, the company said recently. The two 6,500 TEU capacity ships -- the "Hyundai Republic " and the "Hyundai National" -- will be delivered by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. at launching ceremonies planned for Friday and March 30, respectively.

The company said the two new ships would augment another 6,500 TEU vessel already in service since February 16. Hyundai plans to acquire two more ships of the same class in May and June, raising the number of ships in their fleet to 38 by year's end. The two ships, which have dimensions roughly similar to an aircraft carrier, measure 304 meters long, 40 meters wide, with a draught of 24.2 meters. They are capable of speeds up to 26.4 knots (49km) per hour, making them one of the fastest commercial transport ships in the world.
