OD-Global, a division of Old Dominion Freight Line, has expanded its Pacific Promise service to include seven additional ports in China. Launched last year with service from Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Shenzhen/Yantian, Pacific Promise is now available from the Chinese ports of Dalian, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Ningbo, Qingdao, Xiamen, and Xingang.
The service provides businesses with standard guaranteed transit times and simplified rates from the 10 origin ports in China to nearly any domestic destination. The offering also includes port-to-door tracking of all shipments.
Using this fast, efficient service, importers can shave 10 days or more from their standard LCL transit times. Rates are expressed as a simple single rate per cubic meter. While it is slightly higher than standard LCL, the rate is up to 75 percent lower than air freight.
The service is targeted to importers of high-value products, time-sensitive goods, and seasonal or promotional items. It is also geared toward companies shipping from a single origin to multiple destinations.
