APL launches new Panama-US East Coast service

APL launches new Panama-US East Coast service
APL has introduced a new weekly service, deploying three 1,700 teu vessels between Central America and the East Coast of the US.

The first America Caribbean Express (ACX) service will leave from Manzanillo, in Panama, in late June or early July, and will proceed to South Florida, New York, Philadelphia, Savannah, South Florida and Cartagena. 

Operating through a vessel sharing agreement with Maersk's SeaLand, ACX will connect to APL’s feeder network via the Manzanillo International Terminal hub in Panama, as well as intermodal connections to inland US East Coast destinations.

“The introduction of the ACX expands APL’s suite of services to our customers,” said Efraín Osorio, head of Latin America Trade in APL. “We are confident that shippers, in particular those who are moving refrigerated cargo, will benefit from the new service, characterized by fast transits, a modern fleet of reefer equipment, and priority handling of reefer cargo.”
