Investments to expand and modernise our fleet
With 253 modern container vessels and a transport capacity of 1.8 million TEU, as well as containers with a capacity of 3.1 million TEU, we are there for our customers worldwide. We continued to invest in our fleet in the reporting year and ordered six more modern dual-fuel large container vessels, each with a capacity of 23,500+ TEU. We will take delivery of a total of twelve of these highly efficient vessels in 2023 and 2024, contributing to the modernisation of our fleet. Concurrently, we have ordered ten more 13,000 TEU vessels to grow our order book to a capacity of over 400 TTEU. We also continued to build up our container capacity and purchased or leased approximately 300 TTEU of additional capacity in the 2021 financial year to meet our customers’ demand. We also invested in attractive niche markets such as refrigerated and special containers.
