Evergreen Shipping Services (Cambodia) Company Limited was established this month in response to both customer demand for increased service in the country and the potential for trade growth boosted by an average rise in GDP of 7% during the past several years.

The opening of this office will continue the line’s cultivation of the shipping market in Cambodia, matching transportation demands with convenient shipping services, assisting cargo owners to seize business opportunities and enhance their market competitiveness.

After joining the economic confederation of states in Southeast Asia (ASEAN) in 1999, Cambodia’s open economy policy have attracted foreign investment, and has enabled the successful development of its manufacturing industry. This has resulted in significant growth in both import and export volumes.

Evergreen currently delivers cargoes to/from Cambodia by common feeder, via trans-shipment over the Vietnamese port of Cai Mep and Singapore, where long haul vessels connect into Evergreen’s global network across 115 countries.

To further strengthen the development of local business, Evergreen will utilize two containerships of 1,618 teu to launch a new weekly China-Vietnam-Thailand (CVT) service. The first sailing of the service will be from Shekou on April 25 and call at Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh, Sihanoukville, Laem Chabang, Haiphong and back to Shekou. Evergreen looks forward to providing more efficient and reliable transportation service for the future development of the Cambodian economy.
