Introduction to Evergreen Marine Corp.

The Evergreen Marine Corp. was founded by Dr. Chang Yung-Fa on September 1, 1968. Primary business activities included domestic and international sea freight, shipping agent and container terminal operations. Since establishment, Evergreen has set many milestones in the shipping industry, including being the first shipping company in Taiwan to establish regular fully containerized shipping lines between the Far East and the U.S. East Coast, establishing the world's first-ever regular fully containerized round-the-world shipping lines in the east-west direction, and became the No.1 container shipping company in the world in 1985.

In addition to continuous improvement in operations, Evergreen has committed to talent cultivation, development of next-generation green fleet, and launch of e-commerce platforms. Embracing its role as "a guardian of the green earth," Evergreen Marine has taken the initiative in responding to international environmental trends and regulations. We have actively participated in many environmental protection programs. Low speed sailing is used to reduce the GHG emissions and improve the air quality around the port. Such initiatives also contributed to the conservation of endangered sea life by reducing the risk of collision with blue whales, humpback whales, fin whales and other large animals.

Guided by our corporate philosophy of "Creation of Profits, Care for Employees, Contribution to the Society," and dedicated efforts to achieve the business scale today together with all our employees, Evergreen aims to keep in line with the changing world with the Evergreen's spirit of "Challenge, Innovation and Teamwork" and will continue to make a contribution to the world by promoting the development of trade through the provision of reliable transportation services.
