- Business & Finance
Containership charter owner Global Ship Lease has signed a new agreement with Hong Kong-based container shipping and logistics service company Orient Overseas Container Line Limited (OOCL).
The charter was signed for the 2003-built GSL Keta “at an improved rate”, according to GSL.
Commencing in late July, the 2,207 TEU vessel will be chartered for 50 to 90 days to OOCL at a fixed rate of USD 8,700 per day.
“With strong fundamentals driving continuing improvements across the ship sizes that make up our fleet of high-quality, mid-sized and smaller containerships, Global Ship Lease is in an excellent position to realize additional benefits for our shareholders,” Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, said.
