APL Carves New Market in Hawaii with Aloha Express Service


SINGAPORE,  30 Jun 2017

APL today unveiled Aloha Express (AEX) service, a new fortnightly service that directly connects Central China, Korea, Japan to Hawaii. Designed with the best transit time in the industry, the AEX service promises cargo delivery from Shanghai (China), Busan (Korea) and Yokohama (Japan) to Honolulu (Hawaii) in just 19, 15 and 12 days respectively.

“The AEX service introduces a new sea route in our portfolio to directly serve Asia and Hawaii.  Instead of routing via the U.S. mainland, shippers with Hawaiian-bound cargo will find a faster shipping alternative in the AEX service. To optimally coincide with market activities in the U.S. state, shipments on board the AEX service are scheduled for Sunday arrival in Hawaii for early week cargo availability,” said Jesper Stenbak, APL Senior Vice President of Trans-Pacific Trade.
