Services to East Asia and Central America were added during this time and the company began serving the US by 1974, while establishing Evergreen Marine Corporation (New York) in the same year.

According to the Journal of Commerce, Evergreen Line was ranked third in the US for containerised import trade in 2013, with volumes of more than 1,300,000 TEU.
