Definitely the giant of container carrying is the cargo vessel Emma Maersk. This cargo ship is large, beautiful and environmental, including the most modern innovations of shipbuilding and engineering. Definitely Emma Maersk is the largest container ship of the world with capacity of 13,500 TEU according to company calculations.
