New Service for LCL Shipments from China

APL Logistics and Con-way Freight have launched OceanGuaranteedSM, a service providing less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments from China to the U.S. The program will provide “port to door” guaranteed service from Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Shenzhen to all continental U.S. destinations served by Con-way.

Pricing will be calculated on a per-kilo rate, based on delivery from the Chinese ports to 11 delivery zones in the U.S. Shipments for customers with C-TPAT certification will be placed in dedicated C-TPAT-only containers, minimizing the chance of potential delay and allowing the goods to be “green laned” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
