Yang Ming adds new 11,000 TEU container vessel
Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. has added one new 11,000 TEU container vessel, namely YM Trillion, which is chartered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. and built by Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
YM Trillion was named and delivered to Yang Ming at a ceremony held at Imabari Marugame Shipyard on 21 September.
YM Trillion will be deployed on Yang Ming’s Trans-Pacific service PN3 and is expected to maximise capacity utilisation.
The port rotation of PN3 is Hong Kong – Yantian – Shanghai – Pusan – Vancouver – Tacoma – Pusan – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong.
To further strengthen Yang Ming’s mid- to long-term operational efficiency, the Company ordered a total of fourteen 11,000 TEU newbuildings through long-term charter agreements with ship owners. With the delivery of YM Trillion, all fourteen 11,000 TEU ships have joined Yang Ming’s fleet.
