OceanGuaranteed, a service which has provided day-definite delivery to international shippers of less-than-containerload (LCL) cargoes in the U.S. and Canada, has expanded its reach into Mexico. The three-year-old program, which debuted as a China-to-U.S. service, is a joint venture between APL Logistics and Con-way Freight. It combines ocean and truck transportation to deliver cargo to a customer's store door. If a shipment fails to arrive at the scheduled time, the shipper is refunded a portion of the transportation fee. OceanGuaranteed cargo moves from Asia on vessels operated by APL; it is carried to final destination by Con-way Freight. For its new Mexico service, shipments under OceanGuaranteed will be transported on dedicated Con-way Freight trucks from Los Angeles to Laredo, Texas. From there, it will cross the border to Mexico, with delivery via a Con-way Freight affiliate to ultimate destination.
