    APL enhances Asia–Latin America connectivity with three new services

    APL announced the launch of three new Asia-Latin America services that will enhance direct connectivity of Asia, Mexico, Central America and West Coast South America. Together with the Asia Caribbean Express (ACE) service that directly connects Asia to the Caribbean, APL’s expanded Asia-Latin America service network promises a more extensive service coverage and best-in-class transit times across the major economies in Asia and Latin America.

    Its westbound route also offers competitive transit times that are designed to facilitate shipments of fresh fruit and perishable commodities from Mexico and West Coast South America, to Japan and China. For example, it only requires 15 days for cargoes to transit from Mexico to Yokohama via the CDX service.
    The CDX service will commence from Kaohsiung on 4 April with the following port rotation:
    Kaohsiung – Hong Kong – Shekou – Ningbo – Shanghai – Busan – Manzanillo, MX – Lazaro Cardenas – Buenaventura – San Antonio – Callao – Lazaro Cardenas – Manzanillo, MX – Yokohama – Busan - Kaohsiung

Cargoes from North China to Peru and Chile will arrive in just 28 and 33 days respectively.
    The FCX service will commence sailing from Xiamen on 7 April with the following port rotation:
    Xiamen – Yantian – Shanghai – Qingdao – Busan – Ensenada – Manzanillo, MX – Callao – San Antonio – Lirquen – Manzanillo, MX – Shanghai – Xiamen
     
    Caracara Express (CRX) service
