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.

THE Alliance unveils updated service network for 2022

THE Alliance, comprising Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express (ONE), Yang Ming and HMM, has announced an updated service setup, which will be effective from spring 2022.

Among several modifications, a key change will be de-linking the FP2 pendulum loop into two separate services, namely FE5: South East Asia to Europe and PS7: South East Asia and South China to Transpacific West Coast.

Another important update is the introduction of a modern series of fuel-efficient 11,000 TEU vessels, which will replace older and smaller container ships on the most frequented services.

“This reflects THE Alliance’s continued commitment to lower carbon footprints,” said the alliance partners in a joint statement.

THE Alliance to drop Savannah port calls

The Alliance, which comprises Hapag-Lloyd, Yang Ming, Ocean Network Express (ONE) and HMM, has announced it will temporarily remove calls at the Port of Savannah from its East Coast 2 Loop (EC2) service rotation.

“The Port of Savannah continues to face congestions,” pointed out Hapag-Lloyd, which noted that they have taken measures to clear backlogs in some of the ports that are facing severe container logjams.

The change on the EC2 service will start on the 50th week of the year and will be effective for four weeks, until the first week of 2022.

The vessels which will omit the US East Coast port will be the following:

  • ONE Hawk on week 50, 2021
  • Hyundai Honour on week 51, 2021
  • Rome Express on week 52, 2021
  • Antwerpen Express on week 1, 2022

The updated EC2 port rotation will be Qingdao – Ningbo – Shanghai – Pusan – (Panama) – Cartagena – New York – Norfolk – Wilmington – Charleston – Cartagena – (Panama) – Pusan – Qingdao.

Meanwhile, Hapag-Lloyd noted that its services East Coast Loop 1 (EC1), East Coast Loop 4 (EC4) and East Coast Loop 5 (EC5) will continue to call regularly at the Port of Savannah.

With this decision, The Alliance aims to aid its services’ schedule integrity, according to a statement by the German container carrier.
