Ocean Network Express (ONE) and Universal Container Services (UCS) have opened a dedicated container depot at the Port of Hamburg following the success of their hub in Rotterdam.
Moritz Rieck, owner of UCS, praised the partnership, “With this partnership we can fully focus on the needs of Ocean Network Express and deliver a premium service in line with their core values. We look forward to the future and are proud to work together with Ocean Network Express.
Johan Pijpers, ONE, also commented, “Depot yard space in most European and African ports is being reduced and for that reason our strategy is to start long term partnerships with our most valued suppliers where we see opportunities.
“ONE is focused on providing best-in-class service to its customers while ensuring that ONE is set up for growth in one of the most important ports in Europe”.
The ONE depot, complete with an onsite repair shop, has a storage capacity of 4,000 TEU including 25 reefer plugs over an area of 60,000m².
There are 3 reach stackers and 3 empty handlers in operation which ensures a fast turnaround of equipment. The depot also has fully automated gates and real time EDI connections offering advanced security and efficiencies for customers.
