Containership: CSBC began to construct container vessels in 1979 and has actively pursued design excellence since then. One of the most famous containerships built by CSBC is “Maersk Line”, which is the used in the movie "Captain Phillips". In the movie, Captain Phillips's character states that "the dynamic design of the ship is excellent, allowing me to cope with emergencies." This remark showcases CSBC's attention to quality.
