Its dimensions, which make it the third largest cargo ship in the world, are 306 meters in length, 105 meters in width and 15 meters in height. Yes, there is no mistake, its length is 306 meters. A ship of this size has both advantages and disadvantages. Even though they carry many times more cargo at a time than many other cargo ships, they cannot unload these cargoes at every port, and their maneuvering areas are limited for many ports. While these ships are being built, they are generally designed specifically for ports with pre-targeted routes.
