In recent months, he noted, the volumes of containerised goods rebounded dramatically, with noles that in different markets of traffic have reached record levels. The resulting demand for container container has led to a level of capacity unused worldwide of less than 2%, without any available capacity for our main segment of the post-Panamax of medium size, and resulted in the doubling of the noles compared to spring 2020 lows. In this context - he explained Youroukos - we have successfully concluded numerous new rental contracts and extension of contracts at interesting for our entire container fleet that are efficient in terms of slot cost, reefer capacity and fuel consumption.' GSL expects that, despite the crisis covid-19 continues to be a source of uncertainty, the positive period for the ship rental sector the accounting carrier will continue.
