PORT AUTHORITY, GLOBAL, AND CITY OF BAYONNE WELCOME MAIDEN VOYAGE OF OOCL TAIPEI

On February, 27, 2015, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey presented a plaque commemorating the maiden voyage of the Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) Taipei to the vessel’s Master, Captain N.C. Huang.

The Taipei called Global Terminal in its first visit from ports in Asia as part of the G6 Vessel Sharing Agreement (VSA).

Also on hand to commemorate the occasion were Kevin Price, Vice President of Global Terminal LLC and Mayor James Davis of the City of Bayonne, who presented a plaque and keys to the city.
The OOCL Taipei is a 8888 TEU ship that was recently christened and launched from a Shanghai shipyard. It joins similar sized vessels from the participating companies of the G6 VSA and represents a growing commitment by VSA members to deploy larger ships that handle increasing numbers of containers to the Port of New York and New Jersey.

Vessels deployed in the G6 China East Coast (CEC) service to the U.S. make the Port of New York and New Jersey their first port of call inbound.
In addition to OOCL of Hong Kong, membership in the G6 VSA includes American President Lines of Singapore, Hapag Lloyd of Germany, Hyundai Merchant Marine of Korea, Mitsui OSK of Japan, and NYK of Japan.

The CEC service to New York and New Jersey offers weekly transits carrying imports from China, Vietnam, and Singapore, which then transit the Suez Canal directly to Global in order to discharge and load back export cargo destined for markets in the Far East.
