Evergreen delivers aid to the Philippines

Evergreen carried four 20-ft containers of relief supplies from Port Klang to to Cebu in the Philippines to help with the typhoon Haiyan relief effort in late December. They included drinking water, dry food, tents, medical and sanitarian items, collected by Malaysian-based Crisis Relief Services & Training (CREST). CREST is planning to deliver another three twenty-foot containers of humanitarian supplies with Evergreen Line’s help for transportation from Port Klang in early February.

In addition to providing free transportation services, Evergreen has also provided seventeen forty-foot containers to International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), a terminal operator in Manila, for delivery of relief supplies.
