Gemadept snaps up Nissen boxship

Gemadept paid a reported $7.5m for the 1,200-teu Sinar Buton (built 2008) in a deal with Japan's Nissen Kaiun, Alphaliner reported. The ship has been renamed Green Pacific under the Vietnamese flag.

It is expected to be deployed on the company's Vietnam-Hong Kong-Taiwan services. The vessel is now the biggest in Gemadept's fleet. It also has three smaller boxships.
