APL expands Philippines feeder service

8/7/2013 9:02:50 AM

APL, the container unit of Singapore-based Neptune Orient Lines (NOL), has expanded its North Asia Philippines Express (NPX) feeder service to cover Central China and Manila, reported Manila Bulletin.

The service enhancements also include two weekly calls to Manila from Kaohsiung for improved connectivity across Asia.

South China and Hong Kong markets are better served with direct calls to Manila, said APL. Enhanced connections also link Philippine markets with Central China and other Asian markets through calls in Kaohsiung.

Southeast Asian markets can connect at Kaohsiung with APL's intra-Asia services, Korea China Straits (KCS) and Japan Thailand Vietnam (JTV) services. North Asia cargo bound for the Philippines can connect to NPX using KCS and JTV services via Hong Kong.

APL will deploy three vessels, each with a capacity of 1,100 TEUs, on the route.

The port rotation for the NPX will be Ningbo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chiwan, Kaohsiung, Manila, Cebu, Cagayan, Kaohsiung and Ningbo.

Meanwhile, APL, ANL and Hanjin Shipping have teamed up to offer a new weekly service covering Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

To be launched on September 1, the New Zealand-Asia Express (NAX) will operate through a vessel sharing agreement (VSA), with the three partners each contributing two container ships and allocating a combined capacity of up to 2,200 TEUs for every weekly sailing.

Rotating from Singapore, Port Klang, Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland, Tauranga, Brisbane and back to Singapore, the service includes:

• Weekly calls and fast transits from New Zealand to major Southeast Asian ports via Port Klang and Singapore;

• Weekly calls and fast transits between New Zealand and Brisbane;

• Weekly calls from Southeast Asia to Brisbane and Sydney;

• Connections through Southeast Asia for the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and European destinations.
