APL to Start Guam Saipan Express

Singapore-based container line APL has introduced a new fortnightly U.S.-flagged service to Guam and Saipan.

The Guam Saipan Express (GSX) will connect with APL’s weekly U.S.-flagged Eagle Express service (EX1) in Yokohama. The first sailing of the GSX service is expected to depart Yokohama on November 24, 2015.

“We are excited about this new addition to APL’s global service network. We are confident that our services, backed by our track record and familiarity with Guam’s operating environment, will serve both the U.S. government and local businesses well,” said APL President, Kenneth Glenn.

“The GSX service will also provide new opportunities for global shippers to expand their business to Guam and Saipan.”

A dedicated APL vessel of 1,100 TEU will service the route. The GSX service is scheduled for weekend arrivals for ready cargo availability on Monday mornings in both Guam and Saipan.

The port rotation of GSX will be: Yokohama – Saipan – Guam – Yokohama.
