Evergreen Marine Corporation

Mr. Eric Hsieh, born in 1958, graduated from the Transportation and Management Department of National Chiao Tung University and joined Evergreen Marine Corp.

Evergreen Marine was established by Evergreen Group Founder and Chairman Dr. Y.F. Chang in 1968. The company began with a single, 15-year-old used general cargo ship. The company’s early years were fraught with difficulties. Encouraging his employees to live by the Evergreen motto of “Challenge, Innovation, and Teamwork,” Dr. Chang worked for over 40 years to turn his business into an international conglomerate encompassing sea, land, and air.

Evergreen became the first container shipping line to offer two-way Round-The-World service routes in 1985. Currently, Evergreen operates over 200 ships with capacity of approximately 1,070,000 TEU and provides ocean and land transport services in 115 countries. As it strives to accomplish its mission of promoting international trade and economic development and enriching human life, Evergreen also works to protect the oceans and cherish the Earth.
