The Ever Alot, the largest ship in the world, docks at Lanka, Malaysia, not India. Why?
The Ever Alot is the largest ship in the world. It is over 1,000 feet long and can carry over 200,000 containers. That is the equivalent of about 5,000 semi-trucks. The Ever Alot is so big that it is actually too big to dock at most ports. In order to dock at a port, a ship should fit into the port’s locks. The Ever Alot is too big for the locks at most ports, including the port of India. The Ever Alot is able to dock at the port of Lanka, Malaysia because the port of Lanka, Malaysia has special locks that are big enough for the Ever Alot.
The country’s failure to draw larger cargo ships due to lacking port infrastructure poses a threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambition to make India the world’s factory.
India is home to the world’s largest container ship, but Ever Alot, which can hold more than 24,000 20-foot equivalent units. Most harbors along India’s coast aren’t deep enough to handle vessels like this. Neighboring Sri Lanka and Malaysia have also received visits from the giant vessel in recent months.
India’s biggest state-run container handling facility, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, lacks the 17-meter draft needed for such vessels to navigate. Mundra Port, operated by billionaire Gautam Adani’s conglomerate, has so far refused to handle the behemoth.
