Ocean Network Express (ONE) on 1 April 2019 celebrated the first-year anniversary, following its commencement of operations as a liner conglomerate of “K” Line, MOL and NYK. As a member of the THE Alliance and an entity operating in a mere span of 12-months, the company has emerged as a significant multi-trade global carrier.

And albeit the challenges of the ever-changing business climax of the shipping industry, ONE has managed to ensure competitiveness and relevance by achieving such accomplishments in its first-year of establishment:

-) The enhancement of its refrigerated container capacity to which ONE is now ranked among the top-5 largest refrigerated carrier in world (over 250,000 TEU)

-)  The introduction of 31 super-large mega-container vessels (including 20,000 TEUs vessels

-) The successful launch of a four mega-container ship berth terminal (4 million TEU) at the Pasir Panjang Terminal in Singapore – a joint-venture between ONE and PSA Singapore;

-) The attainment of the highest productivity record at the Pasir Panjang Terminal in Singapore for “NYK Swan” – a ONE-operated containership which achieved a gross berth productivity rate of over 300 shipshore moves.

“As we celebrate our first operating anniversary as ONE together, I express my heart-felt appreciation to our customers, business partners, shareholders and worldwide employees for their dedication, teamwork and determination of making this largest start-up entity of the industry a success in every aspect. Thank you for being with ONE, and let’s plan for success together for many more years to come. As ONE, we CAN!” – Jeremy Nixon, CEO, Ocean Network Express.
