170 Years of Shipping Excellence

Since our first American steamer voyage from New York to the U.S. West Coast in 1848, APL has been at the forefront of the global shipping industry. The business that APL and our predecessors built has touched the lives of millions of people, involved virtually every country in the world, and shaped the future of international ocean container shipping and intermodal transportation.

Dynamism, innovation and a pioneering spirit have been the guiding principles of APL for 170 years. The same values remain integral to our vision of a successful future.
