Container Ships are common means of transport through sea-route. These ships carry truck sized intermodal freights or containers which carry loads to be transported globally. The containers have standardized dimensions and these intermodal freight container systems refer to as containerization. The typical size of containers is measured in terms of twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). First container ship was designed in late 18th century in England to carry standardized load units. Shipping expenses and time has been lowered due to containerization which leads to growth of international trade. Hence container shipping is highly flexible with low energy consumption and provides great protection to goods. In present scenario, more than 90% of non-bulk cargo is transported via containerization and largest container ship can carry over 23,000 TEU.
