Container ships

Palletised cargo facilitates the loading into the ship by crane or derrick. with the other subcategories of break-bulk cargo & containerised cargo.

 The central part includes the hold constructed in accordance with the type of cargo to be transported.  In conventional large transport ships (e.  the propeller cannot be immersed fully.  the rudder cannot be submerged sufficiently → manoeuvrability worsens.  The front part of the ship includes the stem & store rooms (if any).  Loaded ballast lowers the draft. LNG carriers) the construction is used wherein ballast is loaded in order to control the gravity & prevent problems related to a shallow draft. container ships.  the ship is exposed to the impact of waves striking the ship bottom (so called slamming). shallow draft causes problems:  the degree of hogging during navigation is large. a deck superstructure with the navigating bridge & the means necessary for the propulsion of the ship: machinery & fuel tanks. tankers. 4 .  e.g.The rear part of the ship includes 1. it emerges from the water → a decrease in the propulsion performance & an increase in the load fluctuation on the propeller & main engine (propeller racing).g. bulk carriers.

stack and store these specific shapes. small vessels of up to 10.      5 .000 TEU. Cargo loading / unloading used to be slow.000 TEU (such as the Emma Maersk). Today's container ships are being built to take over 13. Initially. standardised carrying box.000 DWT. The term "Malaccamax" refers to the depth. Even larger vessels (the "Malaccamax") are now being constructed → take up to 18. or container at 20 feet long (the TEU = 20 foot equivalent unit) allowed for vessels to be designed to carry these standard sized boxes. Consequently dockside equipment needed to be designed to lift. carried no more than a few hundred TEU. This is the limiting factor for any vessel wishing to transit the Straits. as the shallowest part of the Malacca Straits is 25 metres deep.
