OOCL Vancouver - back to OOCL
After three years as Italy Express the post-Panamax container ship OOCL Vancouver has reverted to its original name. It was renamed as part of a branding exercise to identify ships in the OOCL/Hapag-Lloyd service to Halifax, but has been updated again with the advent of the G-6 Alliance.
The ship always carried its OOCL funnel marking and hull colour, and therefore only has its name repainted. As Italy Express, the letter "Y" in Italy was painted with a slanting tail, indicating a rather quick redo.
