Evergreen launches New Orleans weekly service

Evergreen Shipping has launched a new weekly container service to and from the Caribbean and the Port of New Orleans (Port NOLA) on 29 April 2020, with the Evergreen Arkadia calling at Ports America’s Napoleon Avenue Container Terminal.

Port NOLA President and CEO Brandy D. Christian said the new service will strengthen New Orleans’ direct connectivity and will offer additional options.

The addition of Evergreen’s independent CAJ service adds to the port’s current offerings from the Ocean Alliance’s Asia and North Europe services. The direct ports of call will be Manzanillo, Colon, Kingston and Port Au Prince with connections to/from Asia, West Coast South America and the Caribbean.

Port NOLA says its container volumes remain strong despite Covid-19 impacts, with loaded container volumes trending positively to date through the 2020 fiscal year. The addition of the Evergreen service continues to promote this trajectory and expands upon Port NOLA’s direct weekly container service count that now increases to 13, according to the announcement.
