The Taiwanese carrier did not disclose the mix of containers it has ordered, but the average unit price of US$2,430 suggests most if not all are 20ft containers. The total value of the contract is US$39.1M, and the containers will be delivered by Singamas from five different factories.

Wan Hai has also announced it is purchasing 20 new vessels in two separate orders. One is for 12 x 2038 TEU ships for US $26.3M each from China Shipbuilding Trading Company and Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard Co.,Ltd. The full contract is valued at almost US $316M and includes up to US $26 - $29M in appraisal fees and services to each of Concord Marine Surveyors & Consultants Co., Ltd. and Kaohsiung Marine Survey Co., Ltd.


A second order for eight 8 x 3036 TEU vessels worth JPY 4,710,000,000 each has been placed with Japan Marine United Corporation. Wan Hai has also agreed options for a further 4x 3036 TEU vessels within 6 months and 4 x 2038 TEU vessels within 3 months. Deliveries will start from October 2020 from the Japanese yard and from early January 2021 from China.

“Currently, Wan Hai Lines operates a fleet of 72 owned vessels and 24 chartered vessels. This new shipbuilding contract is the company’s latest fleet renewal plan, so as to ensure that the company’s vessel fleet is able to maintain competitive and support continuous market development. Eventually, the company hopes to deliver better service quality to its customers by more efficient vessel fleet,” Wan Hai stated.

Wan Hai's new orders include 8 x 3,036 TEU vessels from JMU
