Globallogisticsmedia.com has for the last several months been featuring some seriously cool videos. In particular, they have been showing future concepts in ocean freight movement, new ships and technologies. Since this is right up the freightdawgs alley, I asked Nigel Lewis of Globallogisticsmedia if I could reproduce these here. Kindly, he said that was OK. Meantime, I seriously suggest you visit GLM on your own. Its probably THE leading supply chain and logistics news site. Thats where I get my news beyond my own network!
Now, check out this future containership design put forward by Japanese mega carrier NYK Line. I have a particular affinity for NYK because 30 years ago, when I started in this business, NYK was a major principal of the liner agency I worked for in the US south Atlantic. I also made my first international trip in 1987 to Japan to see NYK. Good to see that this carrier continues to lead in global shipping.
