Half a century on and still Evergreen

[ September 3, 2018   //   ]

Evergreen Group celebrated its 50th anniversary at the Chang Yung-Fa Foundation, home of the charity set-up by group founder and chairman Dr YF Chang on 1 September.

The festivities were launched with a performance by a choir from Jiahsing Elementary School.

Evergreen launched a liner service to the Middle East in 1972 and, in 1979, it opened the Far East to Europe full container service as an independent, breaking the monopoly of the Far Eastern Freight Conference followed, in 1984, by its revolutionary two-way, round-the-world services and helping to make it the world’s largest container shipping line in 1985.
