Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. has added one new 11,000 TEU container vessel, namely YM Trillion, which is chartered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. and built by Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.

YM Trillion was named and delivered to Yang Ming at a ceremony held at Imabari Marugame Shipyard on 21 September.
