Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) Welcomes the First ONE Line Containers

Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) Welcomes the First ONE Line Containers
Danny Gill

On Jan 24, 2018, Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) handled the first batch of 30 Ocean Network Express (ONE) containers that arrived at Laem Chabang Port, Thailand. The bright new forty-foot ONE Line containers that arrived at HPT’s A3 terminal were offloaded swiftly by HPT’s operations team.

Many prestigious guests were in attendance, including the board of management and staff from ONE Line and HPT. ONE Line is a new global carrier that was formed following the joint venture between Japanese top carriers NYK, MOL and “K” Line. The three carriers declared their intent to merge together in June 2017 and will officially launch full operations beginning in April of this year.

In a statement, HPT said they were honored to be the operator chosen by ONE Line to handle the first consignment of ONE Line containers in Thailand. HPT is the largest terminal operator at Laem Chabang Port and operates Terminals A2, A3 and C1&C2. Moreover, HPT is planning on even more expansion with the launch of their new ground-breaking Terminal D that looks to meet and exceed the growing demands of Laem Chabang Port. Recently, HPT received cutting-edge remote-control gantry cranes and rubber-tyred gantries that will be installed at the first phase of Terminal D – Phase 1A. The new equipment will be the largest and most technologically advanced cranes in Thailand.

The first ONE Line containers are moved to the container yard inside Terminal A3.
