Container ships

A couple of container ships lying at berth in the Port Elizabeth harbour. The PE harbour was built in the 1930’s and is the 5th largest harbour in South Africa after Durban, Cape Town, Richards Bay and Saldanha Bay. The new industrial harbour at Coega will take over certain functions that is currently being done in the Port Elizabeth harbour, but it won’t replace it. One of the things it will be able to do is to take ships that are a lot bigger than what the PE harbour can currently accommodate.
