APL’s Eagle REACH. Guaranteed Becomes Daily

APL, part of the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, today announced that the Eagle REACH. Guaranteed, a day-definite arrival rail service from Los Angeles to Kansas City, Chicago, Memphis, Dallas and New York will depart daily instead of weekly from 1st November 2019.

Extending the money-back-guaranteed offering beyond shipments onboard APL’s US flagged Eagle Express 1 (EX1) service, shippers with cargo onboard the South China Loop 1 (SC1) and Pendulum Loop 1 (PE1) services that call the US West Coast weekly will now be able to secure their day-definite cargo arrival at the designated North America inland locations on rail via APL’s enhanced Eagle REACH. Guaranteed.

“The daily rail departure of Eagle REACH. Guaranteed is an upgrade from the current weekly departure from Los Angeles. This translates into significantly improved transit times for shippers who can now immediately move their cargo on rail to the destined inland locations, on top of knowing the definite arrival day. By extending the product to the SC1 and PE1 services, we reach a wider group of shippers, enabling them to manage their logistics and supply chain planning with more precision,” said Jesper Stenbak, APL Senior Vice President of Trans-Pacific Trade.

Eagle REACH. Guaranteed forms part of APL’s suite of Eagle Guaranteed services including Eagle GO. Guaranteed and Eagle GET. Guaranteed.

Eagle GO. Guaranteed for North American-bound cargo secures APL shippers space and equipment originating from all direct and non-direct loading ports in Asia and Middle East. Cargo from non-direct loading ports will be assured of equipment at the origin and vessel space onboard the first leg, as they en-route to the trans-shipment hubs for priority shipping to the US and Canada.

APL’s Eagle GET. Guaranteed assures chassis from APL’s very own dedicated pool with container on wheels within 2 hours of cargo discharge from EX1, SC1 and PE1 services at the Fenix terminal in Los Angeles. Customers will also enjoy express access via Fenix terminal’s bobtail gate for swift cargo pick-up.

“APL’s Eagle Guaranteed services offer a wholistic suite of end-to-end solutions that are tailor-made for the different needs of our customers. They allow shippers to make more informed decisions and adapt their supply chain plan with greater flexibility,” elaborated Stenbak.
