Evergreen finally concludes deal for giant boxships

Taipei: Taiwan's largest boxline has signed an agreement with Niki Group of Greece for the long-term charter of eight 12,400 teu vessels that will be delivered in 2011, a deal that finally gets the firm on the super post panamax trail despite the objections raised in the past by chairman Chang Yung-fa.
In a busy week for giant boxship orders despite a jittery world economy  Hanjin Shipping has just signed for eight 12,500 teu ships through a long-term charter deal at a reported rate of $59,950 a day for 12 years, while Hapag-Lloyd confirmed this week an order for another six 8,400 teu ships.  [08/02/08]
