First Japanese-Flagged Ship Joins Wallem Fleet

Hong Kong-based ship manager Wallem Ship Management has welcomed to its fleet the first vessel flying the Japanese flag.

The ship in question is Aphrodite Leader, a pure car & truck carrier (PCTC) owned by Japanese NYK Line.

The 5,374 CEU PCTC was built at Shin Kurushima Toyohashi shipyard in 2007.

As informed, the Aphrodite Leader completed the various inspections, audits and surveys in accordance with the Japanese flag requirements. The vessel then officially changed over to Japanese flag upon receipt of the statutory certificates from the country’s government and Class NK.

“This marks a positive milestone as Wallem is now one of just a few international ship managers capable of managing Japanese flag vessels,” the company said.

Wallem provides technical and ship management services for a range of vessel types including car carriers, tankers and container vessels.
