CEVA starts air-sea service between U.S. and Australia
CEVA Logistics on Monday introduced a new air-sea service between Australia and the United States.
The Aussie Super Saver Service is common rated from all major U.S. gateways, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Atlanta and Dallas, said Howard Critchley, managing director of CEVA Australia.
'Freight will fly from the United States to Singapore three times per week linking then with CEVA's service by sea into Australia,' he said. 'The new service provides a cost effective and flexible freight option to customers with lower rates than direct air freight and faster transit times than by sea.'
Transit times from the Midwest and U.S. East Coast to Australia range from 25 to 35 days. The new air-sea service reduces this time to 10 to 20 days.
Critchley said the service would also include full shipment tracking and transit visibility throughout the distribution process.
