APL Logistics introduces containerized Cross-Border Trucking between Cambodia and Vietnam
Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 22 Nov 2011
Global supply chain services company APL Logistics has introduced containerized Cross-Border Trucking, a new service from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to Cai Mep port in Vietnam.
The new service offers shippers a later cut-off time at APL Logistics’ container freight station in Phnom Penh.
“Cross-Border Trucking is a service recovery solution designed for shippers when production runs unexpectedly late,” said Glenn Kong, Managing Director for APL Logistics in Cambodia. “Trucking from Phnom Penh to Cai Mep can also reduce transit times by as much as four days compared to feeder services from Sihanoukville port or barge services from Phnom Penh river port to Cai Mep port.”
Cross-Border Trucking targets shippers who increasingly source manufactured goods in Cambodia, particularly in the retail, garments, and FMCG segments. With the additional flexibility, shipments from Cambodia to U.S. destinations can still be delivered on-time.
From Cai Mep port, shippers can take advantage of global and feeder services to reach their destination.
APL Logistics provides international, integrated supply chain services in more than 50 countries, including both origin and destination services such as freight consolidation, warehousing and distribution management. It uses innovative IT for maximum supply chain visibility and control. APL Logistics is a unit of Singapore-based Neptune Orient Lines (NOL), a global cargo transportation and logistics company.
