The Chinese ports of Xiamen and Batangas in the Philippines will now be visited by APL’s China Philippines Express 1 (CP1) service.
This development extends the market coverage of the shortsea service linking South China and the Philippines.
The improved CP1 service will commence sailing from Xiamen on 15 April 2018 with the following new port rotation:
Xiamen – Hong Kong – Nansha – Shekou – North Manila – South Manila – Batangas – Xiamen
Each week the service will facilitate shipments into and out of the Calabarzon region in the Philippines, through a direct call at the Batangas port.
Shippers may also leverage the relay hubs of Hong Kong and Shekou, where the CP1 service also calls, to optimise market reach.
