Evergreen Line teams up with Alibaba.com

By Tea Grbic, July 17, 2017
As the agent of Evergreen Line, we are happy to announce that Evergreen Line has teamed up with the Chinese wholesale market place Alibaba.com, since the end of June 2017. This is done to offer Alibaba.com members the opportunity to book sea freight services online with guaranteed space and prices.

Evergreen Line has furthermore appointed Evergreen Logistics Corporation as the designated provider of customized, comprehensive logistics solutions for Alibaba.com members, opting for its sea freight services.

Why is Evergreen Line collaborating with Alibaba.com?

The development and growth of e-commerce has resulted in small and fragmented orders from global buyers. Remarking the need for logistics services of smaller volume shippers that focuses on being user-friendly, Evergreen Line is now collaborating with Alibaba.com. The purpose of the collaboration is to allow shippers to search for freight rates and reserve cargo space on the Alibaba.com platform directly. This service will be available to primarily suppliers in China.

How does the Evergreen Line and Alibaba.com collaboration work?

When a booking is confirmed, the selected price will be locked-in. The rate will not change regardless of how the market price changes. With a guarantee of space and price, shippers can keep their production lines running with assurance and be able to control their logistics costs with confidence.

In this early stage of Alibaba.com and Evergreen Line’s partnership, Evergreen Line will be offering Alibaba.com suppliers the booking capacity on routes from the main ports in China to Israel and the South American region.
