The largest container ship in the world will fly the Panamanian flag

The Panama Ship Registry has added the container ship “Ever Alot”, the largest container ship in the world and the first to cross the 24,004 TEU mark, to its fleet. Panama has 18 of the 20 largest container ships in the world in terms of TEUs.

The ship has impressive dimensions, with a length of 400 meters, a width of 61.5 meters – about the size of three and a half football pitches – and a draft of 17 meters.

The Ever Alot incorporates a gas treatment system to meet polluting gas emission limits, energy saving equipment and a bulb-free design to reduce fuel consumption.

The Ever Alot, launched in late June, overtook the Ever Ace as the world’s largest container ship. Like the other ships, Ever Act, Ever Aim and Ever Alp, which have a slightly lower capacity of 23,992 TEUs, she belongs to Evergreen’s “A” class, sailing mainly between Europe and Asia.

All these vessels are registered in Panama, proof of the solidity and the preference of shipowners for the Panamanian register administered by the Maritime Authority of Panama (AMP).

Panama offers advantages to its customers, such as the renewal of the agreement between the government of the Republic of Panama and the government of the People’s Republic of China on maritime transport, which brings important advantages to ships flying the Panamanian flag, including expedited passage and discounts. when entering ports in the People’s Republic of China.

The Registry offers an attractive incentive program to promote a greener industry and a younger global fleet; in addition to its consular network of 53 offices, where maritime services are provided, such as ship registration, mortgage registration and of course, all certifications of seafarers and also through 4 registration offices auxiliaries dedicated to the documentation of seafarers, and 14 international technical offices strategically located around the world, to support the more than 350,000 seafarers who sail on board the 8,500 ships registered under the national flag.
