Mr. Lee started his working career by joining Evergreen Marine in 1978, one year before Evergreen launched it’s independent Far East to Europe service.

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 the international conglomerate encompassing sea, land, and air.

Evergreen became the first container shipping line to offer two-way Round-The-World service routes at 1985. Currently EVERGREEN operates with over 200 ships by capacity of approximately 1,070,000 TEU and provide 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 with you to protect the oceans and cherish the Earth.
