Represented line: Evergreen Line
EVERGREEN LINE was founded on September 1st, 1968 by Dr.Y.F. CHANG and is the trade name resulting from the union of the four shipping companies of Evergreen Group: Evergreen Marine Corp. (Taiwan) Ltd., Italia Marittima S.p.A, Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd. And Evergreen Marine (Hong Kong) Ltd. Said name was established in May 2007 in response to the requests and expectations of clients.
Less than a year after its foundation, Evergreen establishes its first regular service between the Far East and the Middle East. In 1975 it releases its first full container service from the Far East to the East Coast of the United States and in July 1984 it starts a round-the-world container service with containerized vessels equipped with a cutting edge technology computer system for that time. Since then and to the present time, Evergreen has always been expanding and improving its services.
In 2002, Evergreen obtains its first recognition thanks to its commitment policies with the environment and ecology, among which are highlighted high international standards in liner building: the S-Type Green Ships (environment-friendly).
At present it uses international distribution centres based on its own terminals in Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Colon in Panama and the container terminal in Taranto in Italy.
Evergreen believes that using advanced technology is a key factor to becoming more competitive. For this reason it relies on avant-garde information systems in order to connect all their offices around the world to each other and to their Head Office in Taiwan.
Moreover the company added to its services the transportation of goods in reefer equipment, thus being nowadays highly competitive in the transportation of cargo under controlled temperature.
Unimarine Uruguay S.A., having a sound market track, is the company selected by Evergreen to represent its interests in Uruguay and in Paraguay, constituting by these means a strong alliance for an efficient service.
