Evergreen Line embraces the concept that only with a sustainable marine environment will there be long-term success for the shipping industry. In line with its ongoing fleet renewal program, Evergreen Line has ordered 30 more 8,000 TEU L-class Greenships from July 2010. The new green fleet will well position the container carrier to provide marine transportation service in a more environmental friendly way in the future.
