The FUME Fleet

Calculating the required number of ships: A container ship of the type described below can move 2,133 40ft containers at about 27 tons payload (10% refrigerated containers at 25 tons payload, 30 tons gross weight for any type) each or 64,000 tons which means up to 83 shiploads per year. It will take 9 days each to traverse the 9,900 km from Utania to Feniz and back at 24.5 kts, and another 2-4 days each to onload/offload the goods (50 containers per hour per crane with -say- 2 cranes per ship makes 2 days in Blackport harbour, a fast port, and perhaps twice that time in Utania). With a total of 24 days per round-trip, FUME need (83*24/365=) 6 container ships. They own 7 in fact, additiional spare being provided by charter in case of need.
