Supplementary notes

The existing chartered fleet takes into account ships chartered out by non-operating owners to operators, thus it does not take into account 112 ships for 458,968 teu which are normally owned by an owner-operator but are chartered out to another operator, either for operational reasons (operational exchanges within alliances or partnerships) or because they are surplus to their owners requirements.
The 10,000-13,299 teu segment includes neo-panamax gauge ships with a capacity of 13,300 to 14,000 teus.
