APL to widen transatlantic coverage with new service

APL to widen transatlantic coverage with new service
Container carrier APL will introduce the Atlantic Gulf Express (AGX) service to connect the key markets of North Europe, US South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.

The new AGX service, a direct transatlantic service, will call the ports of Le Havre, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Bremerhaven, Charleston, Savannah, Miami, Veracruz, Altamira, Houston and New Orleans. The first sailing commences from Le Havre on 2 October 2016.

“Directly connecting the ports of Le Havre and Miami, the new AGX service will serve as a unique and market-leading transatlantic service that enables shipments across the US East Coast, North Europe and Mexico markets,” said Eric Eng, APL head of the transatlantic trade.

“It promises industry-leading transit time between Europe and major US South Atlantic ports, and fast connections between the US South Atlantic, US Gulf and Mexico markets that serve the needs of the customers.”
