Outside of Shanghai? Choose X-Location for your EXX shipments!

You’re familiar with APL’s Eagle Express X (EXX) service that is primed for your time-sensitive shipments. We are pleased to share another feature available to expedite your shipment – X-Location!

With X-Location, you can now opt to pick up empty containers at your preferred location (see map below) before shipping out of Shanghai to Los Angeles (LA). This enhanced initiative – cross-location empty container pick-up – is supported by the CMA CGM Group's intermodal solutions. And we just had the first successful X-Location shipment that was moved across the border from Haiphong!
