APL Logistics is offering guaranteed delivery of full containerloads from Asia to virtually any destination in the U.S., or you get some money back.
Named APL Guaranteed Continental, the new service connects the ports of Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chiwan and Yantian with virtually any ZIP code in the continental U.S. The service guarantees deliveries of full-containerload cargo on a specified date, or shippers receive a 20 percent refund.
APL Guaranteed Continental is the latest innovation from APL Logistics. A little more than a year ago, the provider introduced OceanGuaranteed - a guaranteed service for LCL cargo that was designed to provide importers with a cost-effective, expedited surface alternative to airfreight.
"From the moment we introduced day-definite LCL service, customers told us they wanted it for their full-container shipments," said APL Logistics President Brian Lutt. "This meets their need for expedited, reliable transportation from a single provider at a time when supply chains are growing longer and more complex."
APL Logistics said its new service will provide the industry's fastest transit times between key ports in China and customers' U.S. locations. For example, full-containerload shipments from Hong Kong to a consignee's door in Boston will take only 15 days.
