Evergreen Joins 18,000 TEU Club

Taiwan’s Evergreen Group, the owner of the world’s fifth largest container shipping company Evergreen Line, has signed charter agreements for eleven 18,000 TEU container ships with Japan’s Shoei Kisen Kaisha, Thai news site Investor reports.

The order includes six 18,000 TEU ships which Evergreen Marine Corp., another subsidiary of Evergreen Group, ordered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha back in December.

The vessels will be delivered throughout 2018 and 2019.

Evergreen has decided to go with the 18,000 TEU container ships to respond to the market demand and meet the capacity requirements within its joint service.

Back in December, Evergreen took delivery of the 27th out of 30 L-type, 8,508 TEU container ships ordered at CSBC Corporation in Taiwan back in 2012.

Evergreen has already taken delivery of five 8,800 TEU and ten 13,800 TEU chartered ships, with another ten chartered 14,000 TEU ships to be delivered in 2016/17.

Evergreen currently operates sixty-six ships within the medium to ultra-large size range.
