Eastaway, a member of the X-Press Feeders Group, has commissioned 8 state-of-the-art 1,170 TEU container ships, with options for more.
The first vessels will be delivered for service in late 2023, while all ships will be operational by the end of 2024.
X-Press Feeders will operate the ships in our Europe and America trade routes, as the newest addition to our 100 strong fleet of operated vessels.
The new container ships have been designed by naval architects TECHNOLOG Servies GmbH. Each vessel will be outfitted with ultramodern, dual-fuel engines. They can operate on regular fuel or green methanol, and are specifically designed to be highly fuel-efficient.
The vessels will align with our practices of environmental stewardship to achieve carbon-neutral shipping by 2050. Moreover, they will help us move closer to the target of operating their first "zero-emission ready" vessel by 2025.
According to Shmuel Yoskovitz, our CEO:
"We are very excited to welcome these ships into our European and Americas network. These newbuild vessels will provide cutting-edge technology to deliver a balance of environmental sustainability and operational excellence. X-Press Feeders is committed to maintaining an eco-friendly approach to expanding and modernising our global operated fleet."
We are looking forward to welcoming the new vessels in 2023!
