OOCL, the Hong Kong based ocean shipping company, christened its sixth and last of its 21,413-TEU G-Class mega vessels last week. OOCL Indonesia, the mega vessel will serve the Asia-Europe trade lane with a 77-day loop: Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Yantian, Singapore, Felixstowe, Rotterdam, Gdansk, Wilhelmshaven, Felixstowe, Singapore, Yantian, then back to Shanghai. All six vessels were built by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) within one year.

OOCL Chief Executive Andy Tung said that the christening “marked a wonderful start to the new year in 2018 as the industry is seeing a much healthier global economic environment not seen in many years since the 2009 financial crisis, and that various governments around the world are continuing to fuel the growth momentum with policy agendas to boost trade and economic cooperation.”
