In late December 2018, two vessels operated by Ocean Network Express (ONE), namely “MOL TRUST” and “MOL TRADITION”, set a loading record of 18,694 TEU and 18,767 TEU respectively.
“MOL TRUST”, which operates in ONE’s “Far East Loop 2 (FE2)” service in THE Alliance, achieved the record on her Singapore westbound departure destined to North Europe on 24 December 2018. “MOL TRADITION”, which operates in the same FE2 service, renewed ONE’s record on her Singapore westbound departure on 29 December 2018. Both vessels are the largest container ships in ONE fleet.
These loading records were achieved by the strong customer support to this service, excellent performance and cooperation of the terminal operators, as well as the continuous challenges made by ONE’s stowage planners and shipping crew to optimize vessel’s capacity and cargo weight distribution.
