APL Setting Up Asia – Caribbean Link

Singapore-based container shipping company APL plans to launch a new weekly feeder service, the Island Bridge Express (IBX), connecting the Caribbean and Asia. 

The company said IBX will enable cargo movements between the two regions via connecting APL services at the Caribbean transshipment hub of Kingston.

The first sailing within the IBX service is scheduled on September 13, 2016, calling the ports of Kingston (Jamaica), Rio Haina (Dominican Republic) and San Juan (Puerto Rico).

“The new IBX service is designed to facilitate growing imports to these important Caribbean markets; and cater to potential cargo traffic arising from the widened Panama Canal where Kingston is closely situated,” Efrain Osorio, APL Head of Latin America Trade, said.
