Seatrade has ordered four container ship newbuildings that will have reefer and traditional box tonnage.

The Belgian reefer specialist expects to take delivery of the 1,800-teu eco ships from China’s Huanghai Shipyard in October 2023.

The vessels will have a “high reefer capacity”, with the equivalent of 13,000 pallets for employment on Seatrade’s Fast, Direct & Dedicated (FDD) service.
