The world’s largest ship, Maersk Triple-E, recently set the world record for carrying 17,603 containers on board.  The ship was deployed by AP Moeller Maersk, which is a Danish shipping and oil conglomerate, from Spain and is traveling to Malaysia.  The cargo ship’s full potential capacity is 18,270 TEU.  It weight 60,000 tons and is designed specifically to have plenty of room for cargo making it too wide to get through the Panama Canal and too tall to get through US ports.
