APL has been serving Australia since 1970, originally using conventional vessels for a regular Straits-Australia service under the NOL brand. In 1977 the ANRO service was formed – a precursor to the AAX service we still proudly operate today. We became known as APL after purchasing American President Lines in 1997, and now under our parent company CMA-CGM we are truly a global ocean carrier.

APL has an extensive network of offices around the world including APL Australia head office in Melbourne and branch offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Fremantle. With our local expertise and know-how, APL Australia enables customers to capitalize on the opportunities in and around the region.
