New Orleans (container Ship)
Sea-Land Services, the largest operator of container ships in the world, continued its ingenious program of rebuilding existing vessels into larger and more efficient carriers. Two 523-foot converted troop ships, New Orleans (ex-General E. T. Collins), and Philadelphia (ex-General A. W. Brewster), with the 469-foot Azalea City, replaced the Seattle and Anchorage in the company's Seattle-Alaska service. The New Orleans class vessels had a capacity of 375 vans as compared with 300 for the Seattle class. Azalea City, a converted C-2 cargo vessel, carried 226 vans.
