Union Pacific to provide rail services for Ocean Network Express

Ocean Network Express Pte. LTD (ONE) and Ocean Network Express North America selected Union Pacific to handle all intermodal shipments arriving on their container ships at U.S. West Coast ports. The contract will become effective from 1 April this year.
Under the new agreement, containers arriving or departing from U.S. West Coast ports will transfer between ONE vessels and Union Pacific trains at its on-dock and near dock facilities in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California. Union Pacific will also carry ONE shipments arriving at Pacific Northwest ports in Seattle and Tacoma, Washington.
“Union Pacific provides a strong inland U.S. rail service network and reliable service we need for a smooth transition. It will also expand our reach as we roll out new services to help us grow,” said ONE CEO Jeremy Nixon.
Headquartered in Singapore, ONE offers an extensive liner network service portfolio covering more than 100 countries. With a global fleet of more than 250 vessels, ONE was established by a merger of Japan’s three largest ocean carriers – MOL, NYK and K Line.
Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation. It connects by rail 23 states in the western two-thirds of the US, providing a critical link in the global supply chain.
