Canada Express

Last year a number of the OOCL post-Panamax container ships were renamed from traditional OOCL names to Hapag-Lloyd names. The ships did not change appearance, so the changes were made so that Hapag type names would appear in schedules. It is also likely that the charters were transferred from OOCL to Hapag, thus better reflecting the balance of activity in the service.

One such ship is the former OOCL Dubai, which arrived yesterday as Canada Express, with many Hapag-Lloyd containers visible.

The ship is a typical post-Panamax OOCL vessel, built by Koyo Dockyard in Mihara, Japan in 2006. It measures 66,426 gross tons and carries 5888 TEU. It is owned by Nissen Kaiun of Japan, but managed out of Hong Kong by Fleet Management Ltd (OOCL).
