“Hong Kong’s prime location, world-class infrastructure and proximity to China markets makes our city an efficient maritime hub in the region and one of the key international container ports to the global trade. With ONE Stork’s maiden call to Hong Kong, we are very happy to have yet another opportunity to celebrate our cooperation with the city, the port and HIT,” said Shunichiro Mizukami, region head of East Asia and managing director, ONE East Asia.

The vessel is deployed on THE Alliance’s Asia to North America EC4 service and set off from Kaohsiung on 16 June. After Hong Kong she will continue to sail to Yantian, Cai Mep, Singapore via the Suez Canal to New York, Norfolk, Savannah and Charleston on the US East Coast.

HIT managing director, Gerry Yim said, “The arrival of ONE STORK marks not only a milestone in our partnership, it also shows ONE’s confidence in HIT’s operational efficiency. We look forward to strengthening our cooperation and providing the quality service to ONE’s vessels during their stay in Hong Kong.”
