APL Claims Launch of First Direct Vietnam-to-U.S. Shipping Service

Global container shipper APL recently launched a weekly direct container shipping service between Vietnam and the United States.

APL says U.S. importers of footwear and apparel are among the first users of the new offering.
 
At a launch ceremony at the new Saigon Port-PSA deepwater container terminal in southern Vietnam, APL's senior vice president for Pan American trade, Bob Sappio, said: "At a time when trade is contracting across the world, Vietnam is among a select few countries that expects to record export growth in 2009."
 
With the new service, Vietnam shipments take 15 days to reach Seattle, and 16 days to arrive in Los Angeles, according to APL.
 
APL reports that Nike is reducing transit times by an average of two to four days using the new service.
