In past centuries the global shipping industry was mainly dependent on wind and wood to conduct its business. Ships were made of wood, and wind was the energy source used to get the ships moving. The ships were fully biodegradable and didn’t pollute. And as long as people remembered to replace the trees they had cut down, the system could go on forever that way.
Shipbuilding has been at the heart South Korea’s economic development over the past few decades, playing a leading role in bringing its people out of poverty.
Every day, containers are loaded to or discharged from Maersk Line vessels. Because these ships need to depart from one port and arrive at another at a specific time, careful planning is required when arranging containers on a vessel — what we call “stowing”.
Friday, at the official naming ceremony held in Okpo, South Korea, Ane Mærsk Mc-Kinney Uggla who is the chairman of the Moller Foundation, had the honour of naming the first vessel.
