Lloyd's Head of Class

Industry Database

Lloyd's Register classed fleet has reached an all-time high of 113.8 million gt, surpassing the previous record of 113.7 million gt set in 1979. Taking into account Lloyd's share of the world order book, currently 21.2 million gt, the combined tonnage is 135 million gt.

Construction is expected to start in 2006, with the first commercial sites on the 1,000 hectare development available to clients in 2010. Container handling, chemicals and distribution will be among the activities in a deepwater port extension that enlarge the Rotterdam port area by some 20%.

Oil tankers, bulk carriers and container ships collectively account for 50% of the classed fleet and significant growth has been seen in the LNG and passenger ship markets.
