A Genco Shipping & Trading supramax recently discharged the first containers shipped from China to the US under a charter from FedEx.

The 58,000-dwt Genco Pyrenees (built 2010) used the Port of Hueneme in California to deliver 184 containers packed with electronics, car parts, clothing and other items, port officials said.

FedEx said it is the first of several vessels it has chartered to carry essential consumer goods from China to the US west coast.
