Correction: ShippingWatch wrote Thursday that Evergreen had ordered ten new feeder vessels. However, this was a previous order. Evergreen has a total of 20 newbuildings, not 40, as reported by ShippingWatch. ShippingWatch apologizes for this mistake.
Taiwanese container carrier Evergreen has ordered ten new feeder ships of 2,800 teu each, report several media. The ten worth around USD 390 million, will be built at Japanese shipyard Imabari Shipbuilding and Taiwanese CSBC, with each taking on five vessels. The ten ships are far from the first Evergreen has ordered this year.
