Is it the end of the teu as a measure of container volumes? This interesting analysis from Drewry shows increasing demand for 40ft high-cube containers, which add capacity without adding cost for shippers. But, with 50% of equipment expected to be 40ft HCs this year, it is starting to become problematic for the shipping lines, which lose capacity, and also can make cargo volume analysis meaningless, as the 13% bigger containers are measured as two teu, like the standard 40ft box.
