Supplementary notes
* Based on orderbook as of January 1, 2017 and assuming no ships are deleted after that date (other than those planned).

According to the source, this statistic reflects the expected fleet after provision for future scrappings and delivery slippage, based on the following assumptions:
  • Slippage : 30 ships for 250,000 teu planned for delivery in 2017 are assumed to be delayed to the following year.
  • Scrappings and de-cellings are estimated to reach 750,000 teu in 2017, 500,000 teu in 2018 and 250,000 teu in 2019.
