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 with the network of services covering the five continents of the world. Since establishment, Evergreen Marine 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 becoming the No.1 container shipping company in the world. As a cargo shipping company, Evergreen Marine regards itself as a "connector of a better life" to satisfy consumers' needs. Therefore, in addition to continuing to improve our operation and development through alliances, joint operations of routes, and slow exchange, we are committed to the development of new environmental protection ships, talent cultivation, ethical management, establishment of e-commerce platforms, and joining international initiatives, to actively respond to international environmental regulations and trends.

In the course of the sustainable development, Evergreen Marine, as a "guardian of the green earth", has taken the initiative to participate in a number of environmental protection programs, such as low-speed sailing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and in turn to improve the air quality in the surrounding environment of the ports. This can also reduce the risk of collisions between ships and large marine creatures, such as blue whales, humpback whales, and fin whales, thus contributing to the restoration of marine life. Guided by our corporate philosophy of “creating profits, caring for employees, and giving back to society,” and dedicated efforts to achieve the business scale today together with all our partners and employees, Evergreen Marine aims to stay up-to-date with the changing world in the spirit of “taking on challenges, innovation, teamwork” and will continue to make a contribution to the world by promoting the development of trade through the provision of reliable transportation services.
