ONE Continuity aka ‘Pink Lady’ docks for the first time at Hamburg
With her length of 320 metres and striking magenta colour design, the Pink Lady has turned out to be a real eye-catcher in the Port of Hamburg.
ONE shipping group’s ‘ONE Continuity’ may not be among the biggest containerships ever seen in the Port of Hamburg, but her unorthodox colour scheme has everybody staring and cameras clicking like mad.
Said Jan Holst, Director Germany & Central Europe: “We are delighted to be able to welcome and to clear ONE’s first containership in the new corporate livery here in Hamburg.
“With the novel magenta colour scheme, we are making this a memorable call for ONE. This, for the shipping industry very unorthodox colour underlines our claim to do things differently and to create something new.”
The ‘ONE Continuity’ reached the Port of Hamburg on Friday, 26 October, and was handled at HHLA’s Container Terminal Altenwerder - CTA.
The rose-coloured containership is deployed on ONE’s FE1 - Far East-Europe 1 liner service, linking Hamburg weekly with the Japanese ports of Kobe, Nagoya, Shimizu and Tokyo.
Additional ports served on a weekly basis by FE 1 are Singapore, Jeddah and in Europe, apart from Hamburg: Southampton, Le Havre and Rotterdam.
For Japan, Hamburg is among Europe’s top ports. In 2017 a total of 1.3 million tons of goods were imported/exported between there and Japan. Around 99 percent of these are shipped in containers.
The main imports from Japan arriving in the Port of Hamburg consist of vehicles, machinery and household appliances, along with chemical products.
With the Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and Japan coming into force in 2019, economic experts anticipate a distinct boost for mutual foreign trade.
