Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced the successful delivery of their first 24,000-TEU class megamax vessel.
The vessel, named ONE Innovation, was constructed at Japan Marine United Corporation’s Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation and delivered on June 2.
With a capacity of up to 24,136 TEU, the ONE Innovation becomes the largest ship in ONE’s fleet.
