Sept. 5 (Bloomberg) -- On a dry-dock in South Korea Maersk is building the world's biggest ship. A container vessel, it will ply the route between Northern Europe and China. It is called the Triple-E and the Danish shipbuilder has ordered 20 of them, at a cost of $185 million each. A Triple-E, in one trip, could transport more 182 million iPads, or 111 million pairs of shoes, from Shanghai to Rotterdam. Stood on its stern, its bow would stretch 19 meters above the roof of the Empire State Building. (Source: Bloomberg)
