By Vessels

APL today announced the enhancement of five Asia-India Subcontinent services. A faster turnaround and transit time will characterize the enhanced product profiles. In particular, the Asia Subcontinent Express (AS1) service is being revamped into two services - AS1 and Asia Subcontinent Express 3 (AS3). This will shorten the current 49-day round trip of the AS1 service to 42 days while the AS3 service will cover its loop in 35 days.
