NYK Introduces Eight New Boxships

NYK has reached time charter agreements for eight new containerships, to be built at the Kure shipyard of Japan Marine United Co. Ltd., each capable of carrying 14,000 TEUs.

These ships, which will be delivered from February 2016 through January 2018, will have improved fuel efficiency and cargo loadability among today’s container ships of similar size.

NYK will continue its efforts to provide higher quality, more competitive services for its customers through the introduction of eco-friendly ships.
