APL launches Vietnam feeder connection

by Canadian Shipper

APL has launched a new weekly service to cater to Vietnam’s expanding export trade – particularly the textile and garment industries.

The Vietnam China Express (VCX) connects Vietnam with linehaul services in Hong Kong to the North American east and west coasts, as well as Latin America and Mexico.

The first sailing of the VCX was on August 3 from Ho Chi Minh City. The port rotation for this service is: Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Fuzhou, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City. The service uses two APL feeder vessels.

By linking with APL’s TP services, Ho Chi Minh City to Seattle, for example, takes 16 days and sailing time to Los Angeles is 17 days, the carrier said.
