This question concerns calculating NPV & the largest shipping container logistics company in the world

A.P. Mǿller-Maersk Group, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Management is thinking of spending DKr400m now on a new leased 'Capesize' ship that would increase its international container delivery revenues by an estimated DKr180m annually over the vessels four-year lease term.
