Singapore: APL, the world's fifth-largest container shipping line, today announced a new service linking China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.  Called the China Indonesia Straits Service, the weekly routing will densify APL's Intra-Asia network.
"We're addressing the ever-increasing requirement for direct-call service to key Asian growth markets," said Jason Wong, Vice President of APL's Intra-Asia Trade.
APL said it will operate the service with four 3,000 teu container ships.   The service debuts 14 November from Shanghai with the sailing of the APL Sydney.
The China Indonesia Straits Service is the third new dedicated Intra-Asia service introduced by APL since 2009.  It will be among the industry's fastest from China into Jakarta and Surabaya. The port rotation includes Shanghai (Waigaoqiao), Ningbo, Xiamen, Chiwan, Singapore, Jakarta, Surabaya, Jakarta, Port Klang (Westport), Singapore, Laem Chabang and Shanghai.  [29/10/10]
