Dutch shipping company christens newest member of Colour Class fleet
Fitting with its mantra of putting customers “at the heart” of its services, Dutch-headquartered shipping firm Seatrade has unveiled its Seatrade White vessel in Tauranga, New Zealand, this afternoon (11 April).
The specialised reefer container vessel was christened by Linda McBride, wife of Zespri chairman Peter McBride, before a reception and guided tours of the new ship. It will depart the Port of Tarunga tomorrow morning.
Seatrade White is a member of the company’s new Colour Class fleet, with a reefer capacity intake of more than 700 plugs. The ship can carry in excess of 27,000 tonnes when fully loaded, with the capability to load both 20’ and 40’ HC reefer containers.
