Growth in classified ships

GL currently has more than 7,200 ships from over 1,900 shipping companies worldwide under regular technical supervision. It said it had doubled the fleet in class over the last six years and aimed to add the next 10 million GT by the end of next year.

The ship that saw GL break the 100-million mark was shipping company Hamburg Süd's 85,676 GT Santa Rosa. A 300m-long container ship built by the South Korean shipyard Daewoo, it has a capacity of 7,100 standard containers (TEU) and fulfils the soon-to-be-mandatory requirements of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), GL said.
68% of the serving GL fleet are container ships, 10% are multi-purpose vessels, 9% are bulk carriers and 7% are tankers. GL-class ships sail under 114 different flags, the most prevalent being those of Antigua and Barbuda, Germany, Liberia, Singapore, Indonesia and Cyprus.

The Germanischer Lloyd (GL) fleet under classification now exceeds a gross tonnage (GT) of 100 million, the Hamburg-based classification society announced.
