Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced the successful delivery of their first-ever 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. The vessel’s state-of-the-art hull design aims to maximize cargo intake while minimizing fuel consumption. It features various environmentally friendly technologies, including a bow windshield, an energy-saving device, and an exhaust gas cleaning system that complies with the International Maritime Organization’s emission regulations.

ONE Innovation is the first of six new Megamax vessels to join ONE’s fleet. It will be deployed on the Asia to Europe (FE3) service, operating under THE Alliance (THEA).

The addition of the Megamax class will help ONE offer more competitive and quality services to its customers, while reducing its environmental impact.

“This newly built vessel will help us pave the way for the sustainable development of global logistics and respond to customer requests with the world’s No. 1 quality of service,” Said Yu Kurimoto, Managing Director of ONE. “Last year, we announced our ‘Green Vision’, which aims to achieve net-zero by 2050. We are actively working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our fleet, and we are confident that this vessel will contribute to this effort and bring innovation to global logistics.”
