APL Logistics and Con-way Freight announced that their three-year-old OceanGuaranteed service for less-than-container load cargo from Asia will now reach all major metropolitan markets in Mexico.
OceanGuaranteed debuted in 2006 as a China-to-U.S. service. It 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.
Day-definite means that cargo arrives on a date agreed to by the shipper and carrier. If it doesn’t, the shipper is refunded a portion of the transportation fee.
OceanGuaranteed cargo moves from Asia on vessels operated by APL. Con-way Freight transports shipments to final destinations. For its new Mexico service, OceanGuaranteed cargo will be transported on dedicated Con-way Freight trucks from Los Angeles to Laredo, Texas. From there cargo will cross the border to Mexico with delivery via a Con-way Freight affiliate to the final destination.
