As major shipping line Evergreen eyes the potential for growth across Latin America, the company has announced that it is continuing to establish new offices at main service locations in the region.
According to a statement, this expansion will strengthen the effectiveness of the line’s operations by improving its capability to react to market opportunities, optimizing the efficiency of its network routing, and enhancing competitiveness in the area.
Following the opening of other offices in Peru, Chile and Mexico, Evergreen has now established its own agency in Colombia, representing a commitment to serving the trade and economy of Latin America’s west coast region.

To expand the container transport options available to customers trading between Latin America and the Far East, Evergreen has also added two more trans-pacific services.
The four weekly services now operated by the shipping company will visit ports in Pusan, South Korea; Qingdao and Xiamen, China; and Lirquen, Chile.
In response to customer demand, for exporting commodities such as natural produce, Evergreen has adjusted its service routings, greatly cutting down the transit time for Chilean exports to East Asia and therefore assisting local fresh produce exporters to take advantage of business opportunities.
