Global Ship Lease (GSL) has fixed a post-panamax container ship on a long-term charter that will be much more lucrative than its current fixture.

The Ian Webber-led owner of 65 boxships has chartered the 8,600-teu GSL Ningbo (built 2004) for at least four years starting in July 2023.

New York-listed GSL said that the vessel has been hired at a rate that will make $16.6m
