APL starts new China-Indonesia service
Liner carrier APL this week said it's starting a new intra-Asia service linking China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand on Nov. 14.
The new loop, dubbed the 'China Indonesia Straits Service,' will be offered weekly.
“We’re addressing the ever-increasing requirement for direct-call service to key Asian growth markets,” said Jason Wong, vice president of APL’s intra-Asia trade.
APL will operate the service with four 3,000-TEU ships. The rotation is Shanghai (Waigaoqiao), Ningbo, Xiamen, Chiwan, Singapore, Jakarta, Surabaya, Jakarta, Port Klang, Singapore, Laem Chabang and Shanghai.
