Evergreen Marine Stops Using Military-Owned Ports in Burma
9 February 2022
Evergreen Marine, a Taiwanese company which is the world’s fourth largest cargo shipping company, has informed Burma Campaign UK that it will no longer use the Burmese military-owned Hteedan Port Terminal in Yangon.
In May 2020, Evergreen was placed on the ‘Dirty List’ of companies linked to the Burmese military or human rights violations in Burma because of their use of a Burmese military-owned port. They have now been removed. Evergreen are the latest is a series of shipping companies to avoid military-owned ports in Yangon, following a decision by Maersk in October 2020 to stop using military ports.
