Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation has added one new 11,000 TEU container vessel, namely YM Trillion to its portfolio, which is chartered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha, Ltd and built by Imabari Shipbuilding. YM Trillion was named and delivered to Yang Ming at a ceremony held at Imabari Marugame Shipyard today.

To further strengthen Yang Ming’s mid- to long-term operational efficiency, the company ordered a total of fourteen 11,000 TEU newbuilding’s through long-term charter agreements with ship owners, as Yang Ming Marine Transport says.

With the delivery of YM Trillion, all fourteen 11,000 TEU ships have joined Yang Ming’s fleet. These newbuilding’s will lower the average age of Yang Ming’s global fleet and enhance vessel deployment. As the company states today, these eco-friendly ships will accelerate fleet optimization, reduce unit cost and offer greater transportation service.

This series of vessels has a nominal capacity of 11,860 TEU and is equipped with 1,000 plugs for reefer containers.

YM Trillion has been deployed on Yang Ming’s Trans-Pacific service PN3, and is expected that the vessel will further strengthen the competitiveness of Yang Ming’s global fleet and service network, as the company mentions in the statement released today.

The port rotation of PN3 is Hong Kong – Yantian – Shanghai – Pusan – Vancouver – Tacoma – Pusan – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong.
