As reported by ALPHALINER the worldwide containership that is inactive slow and persistent increase over the past two months has started to show signs of stabilizing as of the first half of April. The fleet revealed a uptick that is small regards to complete slot ability, even while the amount of sedentary vessels has fallen somewhat.
As Per Alphaliner’s survey that is latest on 11 April, there were 198 ships of 756,585 teu counted as inactive. This represents 3% of the global cellular fleet capacity, the highest level recorded since late 2020.
Compared to the previous survey in late February, there was a decrease of 9 units but a slight increase of 28,297 teu in the fleet capacity.
This is due to a reduction in the number of vessels in all size classes ‘below 5,100 teu’ while, by contrast, the overall count for the ‘above 5,100 teu’ size class went up.
Vessels in repair yards continue to make the majority up associated with sedentary fleet, at 76%. The number of repair ships increased by one, while there was a more significant jump of
51,440 teu in capacity over the past two weeks. Overall the true range vessels in drydock endured at 143 boats of 575,932 teu.
In the ‘commercially idle’ part, the figures dropped marginally. The count went down by 10 ships for 23,143 teu in the past fortnight. As of the survey that is latest, it endured at 55 vessels and 180,658 teu.
Out of those idle boats, the amount of devices under carrier-control dropped by 10 vessels and 23,059 teu with regards to ability to achieve 41 devices of 158,545 teu.
