APL Adds New Korea China Straits Service

Posted by October 20, 2017

APL has launched a new Korea China Straits (KCS) service to serve the Asian markets of China, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
 
The weekly service will link Nansha in South China to the Straits of Singapore and Port Klang as well as Indonesia; offer transit between Indonesia and Manila; and call Lianyungang in Jiangsu where few carriers provide access to.
 
APL said the KCS service will reinforce its footprint in Intra-Asia and injects new capacity that allows APL to transport shipments from North Asia to its network of ports across Southeast Asia. It also offers yet another option that shippers can leverage for market access and competitive advantage.
 
The KCS service will be operated with five Panamax vessels through a Vessel Sharing Agreement with Cheng Lie Navigation.
 
Commencing its first southbound sailing from Dalian on November 18, 2017, the KCS service will call the ports of Dalian, Xingang, Lianyungang, Kwangyang, Pusan, Shanghai, Nansha, Singapore, Port Klang, Jakarta, Surabaya and Manila.
