Taiwanese Evergreen has made a deal with Japanese Shoei Kisen Kaisa to charter 11 ultra-large container ships, ULCCs, of 18,000 teu each, says Evergreen in a press release. The ships will be delivered in the period 2018-2019.

"Evergreen has taken this investment decision to introduce 18,000 teu vessels based on market demand and the capacity requirement for joint service. Current service cooperation arrangements with its alliance partners will enable Evergreen to efficiently utilise the capacity and garner the potential economic benefits represented by larger vessels," says Evergreen in a comment on the investment.
