OCEAN Network Express (ONE) Thailand has reached a major milestone after transporting one million TEU just nine months into the start of business
OCEAN Network Express (ONE) Thailand has reached a major milestone after transporting one million TEU just nine months into the start of business. In 2017 export and import laden containers in Thailand amounted to eight million TEU.
ONE Thailand managing director Kiyoshi Tokonami said: 'With newly built container vessel, ONE Columba, whose loading capacity of 14,000 TEU is the largest ever to call Thailand in late 2018, we successfully demonstrated ONE's commitment to the Thai government's policies for economic growth, especially for the national project Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).'
Receiving one million TEU marked an important chapter for ONE Thailand. Since the commencement of the business last April, ONE Thailand has taken proactive measures to overcome challenges over the months.
The member ocean liners added that this achievement reflected the potential and importance of ONE's role in the maritime trade between Thailand and major trade lanes worldwide.
