YM Target makes its first voyage to North American port
YM Target, Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation’s newest 11,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessel, made its maiden voyage to North America, calling at Terminal 18 in the Seattle Harbor on March 26 as part of THE Alliance’s PN3 service. The upsized vessel will bring added container capacity for our customers.
The PN3 service rotation, which provides direct connections and fast transit from Asia, calls Hong Kong-Yantian-Shanghai-Busan-Vancouver-Seattle (NWSA)-Busan-Kaohsiung-Hong Kong.
The YM Target is one of Yang Ming’s new T-class level vessels. At 1,089 feet long and 157 feet wide, the YM Target has a nominal capacity of 12,690 TEUs and is equipped with 1,000 reefer plugs. The Taiwan-based carrier has commissioned new vessels to enhance its global fleet and service network, in addition to addressing environmental and safety regulations. Two T-class vessels are already operating in THE Alliance’s PN2 service that serves Southeast Asia and Yantian and calls the Tacoma Harbor.
