Ship docks in the same month that Pink October actions are being held at the terminal
The magenta ship from Ocean Network Express (ONE) is scheduled to dock on October 31 at TCP, in Paranaguá. With 330m long, 48m wide, and capacity of 12 thousand TEUs, this is the first time One Amazon arrives in Brazil.
The vessel will appear in ports during the national campaign called Pink October, which fights breast cancer in the country. In October 2021, ONE started the ONE Pink Ribbon campaign, which seeks to make donations to institutions involved in raising awareness and fighting the disease.
The ship docks at TCP in the same month in which informative and preventive actions against breast cancer are being carried out. One of them is the awareness of the collaborators through announcements and lectures; besides the collection of tissues that will be donated to the Open Chest Institute, which welcomes and guides patients with breast cancer since the diagnosis. Those interested in participating can make the donations at TCP’s headquarters, in Paranaguá, until November 1st.
According to the coordinator of TCP’s health and work safety sector, Adriana Galeazzi Mendonça Xavier, the color pink symbolizes not only the fight against the disease, but also reminds us of the importance of women’s self-care. “TCP is extremely interested in encouraging initiatives that stimulate people’s quality of life. That’s why the ship’s visit to the terminal is so symbolic, precisely in the week in which we begin the Pink October campaigns,” he declares.
About the ONE Amazon
The vessel left Pansu, in South Korea, on September 14, and sailed through several countries in Asia via the SX1 line on the import and export route. The ship is scheduled to visit the Brazilian ports of Paranaguá, Navegantes, Rio Grande, and Santos; the port of Montevideo, in Uruguay; and the port of Buenos Aires, in Argentina.
Built in August 2022, this is the vessel’s first trip to the country. The magenta tone was chosen for being unique in the maritime market and for the company’s Japanese representativeness: cherry blossoms (sakura), which symbolize Japan.
