Welcome to the Containershipping.nl website!

This website was launched back in 2000, as one of the first websites with photo galleries of, especially, containerships.

Due to the rapidly developing technology and the busy times at work, I had to give up the website. Nowadays, there are more ways of displaying photo’s, especially on social media.


In the meantime, I have gained over 20 years of experience with the container industry, and would like to share some insights in this world to anyone who is interested. This website is by no means ment to be an official and/or complete website, but an (extensive) general introduction to the various areas of the business. Like in any other business, there are a lot of individual differences in the containerbusiness, too.


All pages were written from my own experience plus various reliable sources. The contents of this website is non-commercial and not necessarily reflects the opinion of my employer.


Enjoy browsing the website!
