Evergreen to take into fleet last of 20 x 8,500-TEU ships

EVERGREEN Marine is taking delivery of its last 8,508-TEU container ship, the Ever Lucky, out of an order for 20 vessels placed with Samsung Heavy Industries. The ship will join the Asia-US west coast trades.

While integrating the new ships into its fleet, the carrier plans to return two dozen chartered ships by 2015. 

The company is gradually increasing its operating capacity to meet rising demand as the global economy recovers, group vice chairman Bronson Hsieh said last month.

He says he can almost see the 'light at the end of the tunnel' for the container shipping industry despite the ocean liner posting a loss of NTD1.69 billion (US$56.5 million), but is forecasting a rebound in the second half.

The carrier will receive five ships of the same L-type model from CSBC Corp by the third quarter of next year.
