YM Triumph visits Tacoma Terminal

One of Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation’s newest vessels, the YM Triumph, recently made its first visit to a North American seaport when it arrived at Husky Terminal in Tacoma.

The Aug. 27 arrival of the 1,090-foot-long and 158-foot-wide vessel signals a big moment for the Northwest Seaport Alliance and Husky Terminal, which welcomed YM Triumph – its largest to date – to the terminal’s newly expanded pier. Husky Terminal recently completed a $266 million reconfiguration project that expands its footprint into Blair Waterway with a 2,960-foot-long pier that could accommodate two mega container ships at the same time. The terminal also has eight super-post-Panamax cranes with an outreach of 24 containers and a lift height of 165 feet, according to NWSA.

With its 12,690-TEU capacity and 1,000 plugs for accommodating refrigerated containers, YM Triumph joins its sister YM Truth as part of THE Alliance’s trans-Pacific PN2 service that began in July. The rotation encompasses ports in Singapore, Laem Chabang in Thailand, Cai Mep and Haiphong in Vietnam, Yantian in China, Tacoma, Vancouver, British Columbia, and Tokyo and Kobe in Japan.
