Evergreen and X-Press Feeders to create European feeder network powered by green methanol

Taiwanese global liner Evergreen has signed a memorandum of agreement with X-Press Feeders, the world’s largest independent common carrier, to place its containers on X-Press Feeders’ new dual fuel green methanol vessels. X-Press Feeders is planning to run these vessels on green methanol and operate them within Europe. The two companies will work together to launch a feeder network, which will be the first in Europe to be powered by green methanol.

For a start, these dual-fuel ships will be centred at the Port of Rotterdam and covering ports in the Baltic Sea and Scandinavia. Ultimately, the 14 dual fuel ships that X-Press Feeders has on order for delivery from 2024 Q2 through mid-2026 will be operated within Europe and the Mediterranean.
