Evergreen Line Launches New CAJ Service
Evergreen Line has launched a new weekly container service between South America, the Caribbean and the U.S. mainland.
Evergreen will have three vessels in the service rotation, which will include calls at Manzanillo, Panama; Colon-Coco Solo, Panama; Kingston, Jamaica; Port Au Prince, Haiti; Port Everglades; New Orleans; Houston before returning to Manzanillo, Panama.
Port NOLA President and CEO Brandy D. Christian said the new service further strengthens New Orleans’ direct connectivity and offers additional options. “We are thrilled to welcome Evergreen’s new service to the Port and for the opportunity to provide our shippers with increased global connectivity through Evergreen’s extensive network of services in Panama.”
In New Orleans, the new service will be handled by terminal operator Ports America at the Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal. The direct ports of call will be Manzanillo, Colon, Kingston and Port Au Prince with connections to/from Asia, West Coast South America and the Caribbean.
“The addition of the Evergreen service at this time underscores confidence in Port NOLA’s and our terminal operators’ ability to move cargo throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic challenges, keeping the health and safety of our frontline employees top of mind,” Christian said.
Florida International Terminal at Port Everglades is the marine terminal operator for Evergreen, which has ships slated for arrival on weekends beginning May 2, 2020.
