Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that it received the ‘One Commitment’, its first magenta containership, at the Yantian International Container Terminals (YICT) in China on May 24, 2018.
The 8,560 TEU One Commitment, which operates on THE Alliance’s Asia to North America PN2 service, wears the magenta brand colour to convey an “energetic, innovative and confident perception” to customers, according to ONE.
One Commitment started her maiden voyage from Singapore on May 15, 2018, and has already called at Laem Chabang in Thailand, Cai Mep in Vietnam and Kaohsiung in Taiwan before arriving at the Port of Yantian in China.
She will continue her journey to Tacoma in the US and Vancouver in Canada.
When returning to Asia, she will call at Tokyo and Kobe in Japan, Kaohsiung in Taiwan and Singapore.
The PN2 provides a comprehensive eastbound service form South East Asia, South China, Taiwan to Pacific Northwest, and a premium westbound service from Pacific Northwest to Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.
Shunichiro Mizukami, Region Head of East Asia, Managing Director of ONE in East Asia, said: “ONE is excited to unveil our first magenta vessel and we would like to thank YICT on this monumental occasion.
“Her arrival is hailed as a significant milestone for ONE. Today, ONE’s vessels calls at all major ports in China provide reliable, direct and comprehensive services to our customers.
“We are committed to service excellence and will continue to ensure the service quality that ONE gives is supporting the global trade.”
Patrick Lam, Managing Director of YICT, said: “We welcome the One Commitment to our terminal. Her maiden voyage signifies Yantian’s prominence in the global maritime industry.
“It also reflects ONE’s confidence on YICT’s capabilities and efficiencies. I look forward to welcoming many more ONE ships at our terminal for years to come.”
