APL debuts Laem Chabang - Pakistan link

APL debuts Laem Chabang - Pakistan link

Singapore: APL is enhancing its Intra-Asia service offering with the introduction of a new Laem Chabang West Asia Express (LWX) service, starting on 5 April.
APL is the first carrier to launch this direct service from Laem Chabang to Karachi. The service offers the fastest transit time from Thailand and Singapore to Karachi. In recent years, trade between Thailand and Pakistan, and the rest of the Middle East Gulf, has been robust.
"APL continues to lead the market with this latest service offering. The new LWX service is driven by the strong growth potential of emerging markets like Thailand, Pakistan and the Middle East, particularly in consumer electronic goods," said Jason Wong, APL's Vice President, Intra-Asia, Middle East & Australia Trade.
"This new service will also enhance our network coverage of the Indian Subcontinent and offer our customers better frequency and flexibility," he added.
The LWX service will deploy four, APL-operated 2,500 teu vessels along the route. Port rotation for this service is: Laem Chabang, Singapore, Karachi, Jebel Ali, Damman, Karachi, Singapore and Laem Chabang.
The APL Busan will be the first vessel deployed on this new route and will depart from Laem Chabang on 5 April. [25/03/08]
