Loading a Post-Panamax Containership
Port of Yantian, China. The Ever Ulysses, built in 2000, is owned by the Taiwanese maritime
company Evergreen and has a capacity of 5,600 TEU. The white containership
in the back is owned by Safmarine (South African Marine Corporation)
which was acquired in 1999 by Moller-Maersk (Danish). Incidentally, a
Maersk ship (in light blue) is berthed right behind.
