Container Ship

Tags: container ship | craft | steamship

Container ships have the highest efficiency among all cargo vessels for shipping. The transportation system utilizing the container ship involves packing cargo, putting it into standardized containers, and transmitting it by truck to the port for shipping. Having spacious decks and compartments, a container ship allows a large volume of cargo each trip and a shorter time delivering the cargo to the port of destination. The model on display here is built to the scale of 1 to 500.
