Here was the first, but back then I had no idea what was to come.

On yet another gray day in the sixth boro, the pink cherry blossom magenta pink containers spiced up the load.  I saw my first pink containers on a truck heading through a small town in upstate New York already this spring, and it caught my eye, has continued to catch my eye.

ONE is the acronym for Ocean Network Express, a new consortium of Japan’s biggest container shipping companies.

I’ve alluded several times to ONE Stork, which I’ve missed twice because it arrived and departed in darkness.  But one of these times . . . .

Read that lettering above?  Check the hiragana.

To reiterate,

I like that new color in containers.  And consortiums make sense for the shippers.
