OceanGuaranteed® has added Canada to its list of destinations, and opened its first inland point of origin in Asia: Guangzhou, China.
Created in 2006 by APL Logistics and Con-way Freight, as the only premium ocean service providing day-definite delivery and money-back guaranteed transit times for ASIA LCL export cargo, OceanGuaranteed now covers nine departure points in Asia, and, for the first time, has expanded delivery outside the US.
When launched, OceanGuaranteed provided service from Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen in China, to all continental US destinations served by Con-way Freight. New services were later added from Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Yokohama, Japan; Singapore and Busan, Korea.
This latest expansion enables shippers sourcing in China's Pearl River Delta to use OceanGuaranteed from Guangzhou, 160 miles west of Shenzhen. APL Logistics provides secure transport from Guangzhou to the load port of Hong Kong.
This expansion also enables shippers to ship their cargo to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, B.C.
Rates for the service are about 25% of those for airfreight, and APL Logistics and Con-way Freight officials say that the service is maintaining a 99% on-time rating.
