A timelapse video posted by Port of Rotterdam shows the works on widening of the Amazonehaven.
“Container vessels are becoming bigger and bigger by the year. 19,000 TEU vessels are currently the superlative in container shipping, but larger vessels are already on the horizon,” was said by the port authority.
Furthermore, they believe the increase in scale would result in a new trend - the formation of container shipping alliances.
The widening of Amazonehaven has prepared the port of Rotterdam for these mega ships.
