APL Enhances Intra-Asia Coverage

Singapore-based container shipping company APL has revealed that it will expand its Intra-Asia coverage with the launch of the Japan Taiwan 6 (JT6) Service and the upgraded Japan Thailand 2 (JT2) Service, starting from December 2016. 

The new JT6 Service will link Japan, Taiwan and South China to the Philippines.

The JT6 Service will call the ports of Kaohsiung (Taiwan), Osaka, Kobe, Tokyo, Yokohama (Japan), Xiamen, Hong Kong, Nansha, Shekou (China), North and South Manila (Philippines).

The first sailing of the new service is scheduled to start on December 2, 2016, from Kaohsiung.

Furthermore, the company enhanced its JT2 Service with 7 additional ports of call in Japan, Taiwan, South China and Thailand.

The upgraded JT2 Service will call the ports of Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya, Yokohama, Tokyo (Japan), Keelung, Taichung, Kaohsiung (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Shekou (China), Laem Chabang and Bangkok (Thailand).

“Redesigned with market access to Bangkok, the upgraded JT2 Service complements its current port call in Laem Chabang to provide shippers a wider network coverage in Thailand,” the company said.

The service will feature a new Japan to Taiwan coverage with Keelung and Taichung calls, in addition to Kaohsiung.

The JT2 service will commence its first sailing from Bangkok also on December 2, 2016.
