Ultra Large Container Ships

The new Ultra Large Container Ships (ULCS) that have been developed at the beginning of the 21st century are ships that transport more than 18,000 containers with the same crew of smaller ships, with reduced fuel costs and reduced transport costs by ton. Its number is increasing and it is predicted that by 2030 it will be 85% of the Merchant Fleet. The new Panama Canal locks opened in 2016 were built for 14,000 TEU Ships (20 feet container unit). An option that will allow the crossing of the larger ships of the future is the construction of the Colombia Interoceanic Canal at sea level to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans by a two-way waterway for ULCS.
