APL Strengthens Intra-Asia Footprint with New Korea China Straits Service

APL Strengthens Intra-Asia Footprint with New Korea China Straits Service
Danny Gill

APL have announced the launch of a new Korea China Straits (KCS) service that will 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 and call Lianyungang in Jiangsu, where few carriers provide access to.

APL says the KCS service will reinforce their footprint in Intra-Asia where the carrier seeks to fortify their presence as a leading ocean carrier. The offering 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.
