Eva Shipping's decision to abandon its plan to raise prices in the United States has caused concern in the market. In response to speculation in the industry that it is "following Cosco shipping and not raising prices", Eva Shipping has recently made it clear that the proposed rates are based on price and market demand, rather than following the footsteps of other shipping companies.

'The pricing process has always been based on a comprehensive assessment of operating costs and market demand, and it doesn't follow other shipping companies in adjusting announced rates.'Evergreen wants rates to be reasonable and profitable, not steep.
