We Are Still Here to Take Your Cargo!

The moments we are currently experiencing are quite troubled. We were forced to change habits, to adapt to a new and strange reality. It won’t be forever, nor will it be for much longer! – we hope.

In any case, being confined to our homes did not end Green Ibérica’s mission: transport your cargoes as far as the seas reach – and even beyond!

At a time of adaptations, and although we continue with our usual services using new methodologies, we also ask for your collaboration. If you don’t do it yet, we ask you to also adapt your processes and make maximum use of the technology we have been providing for some time now.

Through our e-commerce platform, ShipmentLink, you have access to several features that you can use and, thus, streamline processes, perform actions and obtain information.

At ShipmentLink you can perform several actions, of which we highlight:

You also have access to various information relevant for your shipment, such as:

In the same way, and considering the risk posed by the circulation of physical documents, we also request that you only ask the issue of originals as a last resort.

Let’s all work for the common good!

Air Cargo Transport Doesn’t Stop!

The limitations raised by the pandemic COVID-19 are widely known, especially with regard to air cargo transportation. In a period of state of emergency, felt a little (or a lot) around the world, travel was drastically limited, leaving many airlines on the ground, and with them passengers and, in large part, cargo.

But it is not this virus that will stop us! Naturally experiencing greater difficulties in transporting goods by air, with some of the companies limiting – or even suspending – flights to and from Portugal, we went looking for ways to continue to serve our customers.

With this, we continue to have represented companies flying to several places of the world, among which:

  • Africa
  • North America
  • South America
  • Asia and the Pacific
  • Middle East

At a time when uncertainty dominates world trade, it is with some naturalness that we assume the possibility of adjustments and adaptations in the air cargo agendas and destinations above. Even so, we believe we are able to serve you with the best options that the market currently offers.

Green Ibérica’s Contingency Plan

As you may know, and like most Portuguese companies where this practice is possible, Green Ibérica has its contingency plan active, with the minimum essential services working in our facilities. This does not mean, in any way, that we reduce the demand or the quality of our service, on the contrary!

Fortunately, there are several technological tools on the market today that allow us to continue our work without limitations, and even with more alternatives! In contacts, for example, we are now available to answer via Microsoft Teams, or by the usual direct phones of each one in the company, which you can find HERE.

Ever Govern has joined EVERGREEN

Ever Govern is the ninth G-Class (20,000+ TEU) ship to be part of the EVERGREEN’s fleet. After the arrival of this “megamax” ship, only two of this class are still to be delivered, to complete the order of the eleven ordered in 2015. The latter is expected to arrive as early as September.

For now Ever Govern has joined the OCEAN Alliance in the Asia – Europe ‘NEU6’ loop (branded as ‘CEM’ by EVERGREEN).

Ever Govern and New ULCV Characteristics

As we have already mentioned in the past, this giant of 400 m in length and 59 m (23 rows) in breadth, comes with an 11-cylinder MAN-B & W G95ME engine, delivering around 59,250 kW. This engine allows you to reach speeds that can reach 21 knots.

New ULCV and the Environment

Unlike the first seven ships of this class already delivered, Ever Govern, as well as the remaining 3 ships that make up the 11 ordered, already comes with a SOx scrubber installed. This “extra” means a loss of 144 TEU of capacity (from 20,388 TEU to 20,244 TEU). This is, however, an investment aimed at the greater good of preserving the environment. With this we will be limiting pollutant emissions to the atmosphere and, consequently, our ecological footprint.
