Evergreen Makes Maiden Call at Salalah


Evergreen Line was welcomed by the Port of Salalah for the first time on December 18, 2014. The 8,452 TEU M.V. Ever Lively achieved berth productivity in excess of 150 moves per hour in its 12-hour stay, that opens up a new chapter in liner/port collaboration. 

David Gledhill, CEO of the Port of Salalah, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Evergreen to the Port of Salalah for the first time and hope that this is the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

“Evergreen is a well-respected and forward looking company and we look forward to being able to help them develop their service offering in this region. It is also pleasing to note that Salalah now has the fourth largest shipping lines in the world calling at our port.”

Evergreen services range from East Asia to North America/Central America, East Asia to Northern Europe/Mediterranean, Europe to North America (transatlantic), East Asia to Southern Hemisphere (intercontinental), and Intra-Asia, serving more than 350 ports around the globe.

Evergreen is the fourth largest ocean carrier in the world, with more than 190 container vessels with a combined capacity of approximately 920,000 TEU. 

The Port of Salalah operates one of the biggest container terminals in the region and lines already offer weekly direct services to major destinations in Europe, Africa, North America and Asia.

The Salalah free zone, which is adjacent to the port, has already attracted significant foreign direct investments and a number of new projects are expected to commence operation in 2015.
