The two new large containerships set sail in good order with the blessing of fleet superintendents and the executives of the shipyards after the delivery procedures were completed.
The 58,000-horsepower main engines of the ships power the technically advanced vessels to their assigned loading ports on the trans-Pacific services of Evergreen, while the propellers, spanning almost ten meters in diameter, push them efficiently towards their new employment.
On the Asia-US East Coast (AUE) service, which follows a port rotation from Xiamen, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Yantian, via the Panama Canal to Colon Container Terminal in Panama and then to Savannah, New York, Norfolk and Baltimore, before returning to Asia, Ever Forever will be placed into service.
On the South China-Taiwan-US West Coast (HTW) route, Ever Far is deployed, with a service range covering Kaohsiung (or the future Taipei Port), Xiamen, Hong Kong, Yantian, Los Angeles and Oakland.
In the design of F-type ships, Evergreen has implemented the Smart Ship System, which has been certified by the related class societies. This advanced device will provide both the crew and the supervising team ashore with a wide range of valuable information, helping to monitor the operating condition of the ship. In compliance with changing weather and sea conditions, this helps the crew perform safe and timely navigation and maintain trim optimization.
