Port of Oakland eye popper: magenta container ship in town

[ July 9, 2018   //   ]

Here’s a style tip for those who track ships: magenta is the new black.  A 1,036-foot-long, cherry blossom magenta-colored container ship arrived on July 9 at the Port of Oakland.  Called the ONE Competence, it’s the newly branded symbol of Japan’s recently consolidated container shipping lines.

The ONE Competence is part of the Ocean Network Express, or ONE.  The shipping line began service in April following the merger of Japan’s three legacy carriers – K Line, MOL and NYK.  It’s one of the largest shipping lines by volume at the Port of Oakland.

The ONE Competence can carry more than 8,000 20-foot containers.
