APL is expanding its Intra-Asia service network with the launch of a new Japan Taiwan 6 (JT6) Service and an upgraded Japan Thailand 2 (JT2) Service. The new JT6 Service links together Japan, Taiwan, South China with the Philippines. The upgraded JT2 Service is enhanced with 7 additional ports of call in Japan, Taiwan, South China and Thailand.

“APL is committed to keep leveling up our shipping services and market connectivity so that our customers can better access existing and new markets with ease, reliability and speed.
