CEVA launches weekly direct LCL service from Singapore to New York
AUG 26, 2015: CEVA Logistics has announced the launch of a new weekly LCL (Less-than-Container Load) service from Singapore to New York. This is the first guaranteed weekly service direct to the U.S. from Singapore as part of the company’s initiative to enhance its LCL offerings serving Trans-pacific needs.
The weekly direct sailing service will take approximately 23 days from port to port, providing customers with predictability and better control of their cargo movement. CEVA will ensure track and trace visibility of all cargo shipments from origin to destination. The service is also complemented by consolidation services from Penang to Singapore before moving the load to New York.
CEVA’s Lynnda Loo, Head of Ocean Freight for Singapore and Malaysia said, “We are excited to roll out a weekly LCL service from Singapore to New York, in response to customer feedback. Singapore, being strategically located in the region, is a key hub for CEVA’s LCL services, with ongoing weekly services directly to Shanghai, Pusan, Chittagong and other destinations. We will continue to increase the number of destinations for Ocean Freight to provide our customers with greater flexibility and choice.”
Customers will also benefit from the availability of door-to-door trucking service from New York to 51 destinations in the U.S. through CEVA’s integrated supply chain services.
“Once the container arrives in New York, we utilize a 100 percent all-motor truck network to service the 51 destinations up and down the East Coast and U.S. Midwest. We decrease our transits into the Midwest by an average of five days versus a routing over Los Angeles,” said Robert Braun, LCL Director for CEVA in North America.
