Ocean Network Express ready to take bookings
Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) announces that acceptance of bookings for its container shipping service begins in stages from February 1, 2018. ONE is a joint venture of Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd., Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha set to start its business operations on April 1, 2018.
With the commencement of ONE’s business operations, there will be up to four companies, namely ONE, “K” Line, MOL, and NYK operating on the same service concurrently during the transitional period until three pre-existing lines completely stop operating vessels. To help our customers to place bookings with the right party, we have provided more information of the operators on each route and service in “Booking Ownership Guide” and “Vessel Voyage Direction List” on four companies’ websites at the following URLs:

If a customer makes a booking with an operator different from those in the “Booking Ownership Guide” or “Vessel Voyage Direction List”, they will attempt to coordinate between ONE and “K” Line / MOL / NYK to ensure handover to the appropriate operator upon confirmation of the customer’s intention.
