It was a year ago when BNCT, Busan New Port’s newest most modern container terminal, welcomed Evergreen’s 1st vessel call with EVER UTILE on the BEX2 service on 05 April 2016. The excitement repeats but even more meaningful than before with the NUE Service making its weekly call at BNCT which is part of EVERGREEN’s global partnership with CMA CGM, COSCO Shipping and OOCL in the recently launched OCEAN Alliance serving trade between Qingdao, Ningbo, Shanghai, Busan and SAVANNAH.
To celebrate this unique and remarkable moment, BNCT held a ceremony on MV EVER LIBERAL with EVERGREEN and its senior officers on 19 April.
“Bringing the NUE service to BNCT is an important step for Evergreen in this market”… says BNCT’s CCO, Peter Slootweg …“ as consolidating their Alliance volume in one terminal saves significant cost by heavily reducing between terminal transshipment levels and unnecessary between terminal trucking. Best of all, we can secure these benefits for EVERGREEN while accommodating serious growth for many years to come as BNCT can still expand up to 1 million TEU additional capacity in the future by putting additional equipment and yard blocks into service.”
Mr. Young-hwan YUN, Branch Manager of EVERGREEN Busan agrees stating: “Starting this Ocean Alliance service is an exciting opportunity for both BNCT and Evergreen. With the maiden call of EVER LIBERAL we are confident to contribute to BNCT and Busan Port’s volume growth and both our companies’ success. We are looking forward to growing together with BNCT.”
