APL Logistics and Con-way Freight have expanded their day-definite OceanGuaranteed service into Mexico. The service, which combines ocean and truck transportation to deliver less-than-containerload (LCL) cargo from Asia to a customer's store door, had previously been available only to customers in the United States and Canada. This latest expansion broadens the program's coverage to all major metropolitan markets in Mexico, extending the reach of day-definite deliveries to shippers throughout North America.
Under the service, OceanGuaranteed cargo will move from Asia to the United States on vessels operated by APL. Once the cargo arrives in Los Angeles, Con-way Freight takes over, hauling it to Laredo, Texas. From there, the cargo will cross the border to Mexico with delivery via a Con-way Freight affiliate to the final destination.
Originally a China-to-United States service, OceanGuaranteed was expanded last year into Canada. With the addition of Mexico, origin ports in Asia are now connected for the first time to every major North American market via day-definite delivery.
