Eagle Express 1 (EX1)

CMA CGM

Introducing the enhanced APL's Eagle Express 1 (EX1) service - now with new service rotation in the westbound and the deployment of U.S. President-named vessels

When it comes to service reliability, APL’s flagship EX1 remains the industry’s leading service* in the Trans-Pacific, connecting the key markets of North Asia and the U.S. West Coast with consistent on-time performance. The revised EX1 service rotation will ensure APL continues to deliver the service reliability that our customers have come to expect from us.

What’s more, drawing on APL’s 170-year strong heritage, EX1 will be deployed on U.S. flagged vessels that are christened with former U.S. Presidents’ names – with President FD Roosevelt as the first vessel to run on the enhanced EX1 rotation on the westbound.
