The weekly service for Evergreen customers includes sailings to and from Miami; Colon Container Terminal, an Evergreen-owned and operated facility in Panama, and Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. The service for Crowley customers is unchanged with weekly sailings to and from Port Everglades; Manzanillo, Panama; Puerto Limon and Santo Tomas, Guatemala.
The new CAM service will commence on May 30, 2012 Northbound and June 14, 2012, Southbound and will utilize two Crowley container ships.
"Being able to partner with a premier American shipping company on this significant trade route will allow us to bring to our customers another expansion that will help them be more competitive and visible in their markets," said Anchor Chang, President of Evergreen Marine Corp. "Crowley and Evergreen enjoy a mutual respect for each other's excellent reputations. We anticipate a long and expanding relationship with the good people at Crowley."
"We are pleased to be working with Evergreen to help them serve their customers with a modern, reliable and highly-efficient container service," said Tom Crowley, chairman, president and CEO of Crowley Maritime Corporation. "This Evergreen-Crowley partnership is a great example of how a global carrier can serve its customers regionally without adding vessel tonnage and the associated costs."
