Evergreen Signs Panama Container Terminal Contract Dr. Chang Yung-fa, chairman of the Evergreen Group, and Ernesto T. Balladeras, president of Panama, signed a contract whereby Evergreen will invest $85 million in the first phase of a new container terminal at Colon at the eastern end of the Panama Canal. The new facility, the Colon Container Terminal, is located at Coco Solo, adjacent to the city of Colon, to the north of Panama City. Construction of the first phase will start in March 1996 and is scheduled to be completed in December 1997. The facility will be managed by Evergreen on a common-user basis. Once the first phase of the terminal is fully operational, the company predicts an annual throughput of 300,000 to 400,000 containers. Initially, the two berths will be served by three Panamax gantry cranes.

The new terminal will become the hub point for Evergreen's regional Caribbean feeder service. It currently uses two 510-TEU vessels.
