Editorial Comment!
A recent documentary in late March, 2010 on the History Channel noted that all of these containers are shipped back to China, EMPTY!
Yep, that's right.
We send nothing back on these ships.
What does that tell you about the current financial state of the west in crisis?
So folks, just keep on buying those imported goods (mostly gadgets) until you run out of money. Then you may wonder what the cause of unemployment
(maybe even your job) in the U..S, UK, Canada and even in Australia????
Enough said!!!
This message, if any, surely deserves forwarding, doesn't it ?

These ships were commissioned by Wal-Mart to get their imported
goods from China ... They hold an incredible 15,000 containers and have a 207 foot deck beam!! The full crew is just 13 people on a ship longer than a US Aircraft Carrier which has a crew of 5,000. With its 207' beam it is too big to fit through the Panama or Suez Canals .........

It is strictly transpacific. Cruise speed: 31 knots.
The goods arrive four days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a China-to-California run. 91% of Wal-Mart products are made in China. So this behemoth is hugely competitive even when carrying perishable goods.
The ship was built in five sections. The sections are floated together and then welded. The command bridge is higher than a 10-story building and has
11 cargo crane rigs that can operate simultaneously unloading the entire ship in less than two hours
