EVER LISSOME Makes Maiden Voyage Call to Atlantic Ports

Ever Lissome, the fifth of Evergreen's 8,508-TEU containerships built by China Shipbuilding Corp. in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, made its maiden voyage to the North America ports, with Maher Terminals LLC in Port Elizabeth, NJ. The vessel is on its first voyage, having been delivered on May 15.

Previously, nineteen 8,452-TEU L-type ships were delivered by Korea's Samsung Heavy Industries for Evergreen Line.

Ever Lissome is plying the AUE route (Asia-North America East Coast) via the Suez Canal calling at Xiamen, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Yantian and Singapore before transiting the canal and crossing the Atlantic. When the ship departs the port of New York/ New Jersey, it will continue to Norfolk and Savannah.

"We are pleased to introduce our newest ships to our customers using East Coast ports," said Evergreen Vice Group Chairman Captain S. Y. Kuo. "Evergreen Line commenced its full containership service between Asia and America utilizing newly built vessels that were just one-tenth the size of Ever Lissome at Atlantic Coast harbors. Evergreen Line has been conducting a fleet renewal program designed to accommodate the anticipated trade recovery and to continue its effort to protect the marine environment with eco-friendly vessels," he added.

Raymond Lin, Evergreen Group's vice group chairman, who officiated at the ship's naming, noted that the world output is expected to grow by 3.6 percent in 2014. In addition, he noted, Clarksons expects global box trade to increase by 6 percent this year.

Owned by Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd., Ever Lissome is 334.8 meters in length, 45.8 meters wide, with 948 reefer plugs. The L-class containership is fitted with alternative marine power, ballast water treatment system, electronic-controlled fuel injection engine that supports slow steaming and many more eco-friendly designs.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
