Something looked different about this small container ship as it approached.

Then I realized it was the color of the containers.  They were not the usual ones:  CMA CGM, Maersk, MSC, Zim, Evergreen, ONE . . . 

Just before New Year’s, I noticed a Wan Hai box on a truck on the NJ Turnpike.  Wan Hai?  Never heard of them I thought, so it’s taken me a while to get back to these photos, but Wan Hai is NOT a new company.  See the history here.  It’s just recently that they’ve expanded services to the USA, and what better time for a shipping company than now.

Arianna A is not a Wan Hai vessel, although some have called in the sixth boro.  I see a lot of traffic, just never caught one of the Wan Hai boats.


So it’s a new box color to look for!

All photos, January, WVD.

Entirely unrelated:  If you (or a friend of yours) have a million to plunk down on a 1931 motor yacht, SHELLFISH is the boat.
