Maersk Emden | Container Ship


Ther expansion of the Panama Canal which was completed in the mid-2010's has profoundly altered the world of international shipping.  Pre-expansion, the largest "Panamax" ships which could pass through the canal's two lock systems were limited to about 5k 20 foot equivalent container units ("TEU's") of capacity.  As of June, 2016, the canal can now accommodate ships carrying up to 13k TEU's.  Contributor OCEANCRAFTS Motion Gallery brings us this drone video of the Maersk Emden, which is an example of a "Post-Panamax" ship.
