Cargo System Insights: Effective cargo solution for container ships

Why is an effective cargo solution crucial for a container ship?

Welcome to MacGregor Cargo System Insights with Arto Toivonen and Toni Mäenpää. In this video, we explore why an effective cargo solution is crucial, not only for shipowners, but also shipyards.

Shipyards develop specific vessel types to meet market demands, address shipowner inquiries, and differentiate themselves from competitors.

By integrating MacGregor’s optimised cargo system early, you can make a significant difference compared to standard vessels and gain a competitive edge.

Solution benefits

The MacGregor Container Ship Cargo Solution offers added value to shipowners, shipyards, and other stakeholders involved in the shipbuilding process:

  • Increased Return on Investment (ROI): The MacGregor Containership Cargo Solution addresses how a ship can deliver the best return on investment for shipowners. 
  • Maximized Utilization Rates: Early recognition and incorporation of cargo profile requirements into system planning maximizes a containership's utilization rates.
  • Enhanced Earning Capabilities: By optimizing loading ability and the efficiency of the cargo handling system, the ship's earning capabilities will be increased. 
  • Emission Reduction: The more efficient the cargo system is, the greater is the number of TEU’s a ship can carry, which in turn reduces the emissions per carried TEU, and subsequently per transported commodity. 
  • Added Value to Shipyard Offerings: MacGregor Containership Cargo Solution allows shipyards to sell ships with optimized payload capacity, adding value to their customers' vessels.

“Ship’s earning capacity is the cornerstone. Thinking the big picture makes the system. Losing focus in one single part of the big picture can destroy the earning of the ship”

Collaborative Model

MacGregor Container Ship Cargo Solution represents a collaborative model in the industry, going beyond the traditional 'order to delivery' process for mutual benefit.

The benefits collectively highlight the advantages of

  • early planning
  • optimization
  • tailored services
  • collaboration

MacGregor's holistic approach involves collaboration from an early stage, ensuring commitments from all parties involved, leading to the delivery of a ship with the highest possible payload capacity.


Customized solution

MacGregor Container Ship Cargo Solutions are customized to include elements that provide value to the shipowner, ensuring vessels can carry the agreed-upon number of payload containers.

“Solution is not only making a new loose lashing system. It is optimizing all the parts of the vessel’s container cargo system to every individual ship operator’s routes and cargo profile”
