APL BRINGS AGENCY ACTIVITIES IN-HOUSE IN PUERTO RICO
APL has brought its agency operations in-house in Puerto Rico, by opening a wholly owned subsidiary, “APL de Puerto Rico.”
Previously, APL used Inchcape Shipping Services as its agent in Puerto Rico.
Jose A. Vazquez has been appointed general manager of APL de Puerto Rico.
Although APL is not a Jones Act operator in the Puerto/U.S. mainland trade, APL links Puerto Rico on a weekly basis with key intra-regional markets, and with North America, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.
During the past 12 months, APL has changed its agency operations to wholly owned businesses in Costa Rica, Honduras, and Panama.
