For the comment in the article that the actually TEU count is substantial lower, my experience was that in percentage a level of rough 66 % from the max capacity could be carried when
the cargo consisted of a lot heavy reefer container and the rest a good mix. I cant,y remember that I was ever over 66%. Really don,t know if that is standard.

At first I thought that it will be another book keeping game within 400x59 m LxB envelope, now I see that they indeed want to increase the breadth. If so, it will really be the new generation, but then the other things will also have to follow, like crane reach etc...
