Gigantic Overseas Autoliner | Mega Transports | Free Documentary

  • Published on Nov 10, 2019
  • A transport to the other side of the globe. The “Höegh Trapper” is the largest automobile transporter in the world. Two hundred meters long, thirty-six meters wide. But the major attraction is actually behind the steel hull: A gigantic cargo area: In total over seventy-one thousand square meters. Enough room for eight-thousand-five-hundred cars. And hundreds of the so-called “High- and Heavies”: Gigantic machines of any kind.
    Her journey takes the fully loaded “Trapper” on a journey covering
    28,000 kilometers. The starting point: Antwerp in Belgium. Here, Port Captain Per Henningsen has to load 1,000 cars in record time - only 16 hours. Next stop: Bremerhaven, in Germany. Besides 2,000 cars here,
    Per has to load 200 high and heavy units - one of which has him
    worrying more than usual. He doesn’t know the exact measurements of the mysterious cargo - will it fit into the Trapper? From Bremerhaven, the journey continues to England, France, and Spain, and then out onto the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. From there across the pond to ports in the US and Jamaica, through the Panama Canal onto the Pacific and all the way to New Zealand and Australia…All that in just fifty days! The Panama Canal is the bottleneck of the journey. The canal is over a hundred years old and was designed for the largest ships at that time. Maximum width: 32.3 meters. For behemoths like The Trapper, that’s not enough. Canal authorities began construction on newer, larger lock systems in 2007. Since its opening in 2016, ships belonging to the so-called Neopanamax class can now transit the canal and that includes the Trapper. But even though the new lock chambers are fifty-five meters wide: For the Trapper this means not even ten meters clearance on either side - a special challenge for Captain She and his crew…

    Ships like this average only 26 crew, and only 5 to 6 assigned to cleaning 14 car decks at a given time.

    High freeboard ships are safe from pirates but nightmare during stormy & windy conditions.

    So is this ship built in China the reason why most of the crew are Chinese or was it built in Germany because of the name? Help please 🤔

    I liked it how the Chinese crew started bashing on the chefs kitchen being dirty but went right into kissing his ass at the end. Lol I mean they knew damn well chef was gonna wipe his ass with their egg roll if they didn’t show some kind of love 😂

    Narrator: I mainly do suspense and action.
    Director: Documentaries about global shipping?
    Narrator: Perhaps.... I may have to improvise and give it everything I've got, as if everything was on the line.
    Director: will I be able to breathe a sigh of relief?

    Why are they "translating" the Asian guys that are already speaking English but with accents? LOL And they're actually changing the words that they say... sounds like that part of the show was made for toddlers who are just now starting to speak English! :/

    I've been through the Panama Canal many times. It's odd that the neo-Panamax sized locks do not use "mules" to keep the vessel in position during the step up/ step down procedure.

      @Primalxbeast a fuc.kin mens lol. I think you and I are on the same page. Just get what you want from the doc. I find the facts, and not how it comes across. Even a babbling idiot has facts, no matter how dumb they sound. People with a simple mind are stuck on the way the guy talks. You sound way more elequant then I do. Lol thanks

      and who are you? You learn more if they don't waste time with manufactured drama. The focus of the video ends up being on the drama instead of the information and it comes across as fake. I don't believe anything is real on "reality TV" shows, so if a "documentary" is done in the same style, I have my doubts about the accuracy of the info given.

    When going through the canal why wouldn't they have a system of bumpers or rubber wheels on the side so if I ship did hit the side it wouldn't be an issue. Just have the wheels sideways to the ship and it can easily move forward and backwards as needed without damage. I must be missing something because it seems like an obviously solution.
