Freight ships are the sea vessels that make avid maritime enthusiasts go crazy! These big boys are anywhere from several hundred feet to nearly two thousand feet in length. And they carry upwards of 10 thousand to 16 thousand freight containers. Which means, all those specs causes havoc and total chaos for the crew that need to load and offload these ships twenty-four seven around the clock worldwide.
Nevertheless, with these designs, dock workers will really be pulling their hairs from their chins and eyebrows.
Basically, at the moment, shipbuilders are making their hulls longer and longer in length in order to accommodate the ever-expanding rise of carrying more and more freight containers. However, what if shipbuilders constructed two, three, four, or even five hulls, each anywhere from 1000 feet to 3000 feet in length, and then figured out a method to conjoined them altogether in a single wide row? Maybe, create a gigantic control deck, which would connect these multiple hulls together. And then let the wielders do further work on these hulls for maximum sealing coverage. Or use very powerful magnets to connect and disconnect the hulls to or from each other; with a control deck that can easily readjust itself according to how many hulls are attached to it. Therefore, instead of one ship bring in some 16,000 containers per voyage, it would deliver up to five times that amount or 80,000 freight containers!
Another design that might work: Make a freight ship similar to how a locomotive train pulls hundreds or thousands of individual freight cars. However, rather than steering train cars, the locomotive freight ship would be tugging along hundreds or thousands of individual freight ships. With this technique, the amount of freight containers being carried would go through the roof! Let's say that there are 1000 freight ships attached to the locomotive freight container ship. Moreover, each one carries a maximum payload of 5,000 containers; that means a total of 5 million containers are being delivered on one ship voyage! On top of that, the locomotive ship also has a carrying capacity of 2000 freight containers, so the amount slightly exceeds the 5 million mark.
Finally, this design might work as well in transporting freight container ships back and forth between countries. Stack a large number of barges in single file across the diameter from one nation to another. Then, set up support beams, rails, and other connective sections and parts to construct a freight container bridge. Basically, the barges will support and balance the bridge, with the usage of counterweights, while the bridge, similar to an upside down monorail or double-rail, transports the freight containers back and forth between the two nations like fast-speed traffic.
