APL today announced the launch of the Colombia Bridge Express (CBX) Service – a weekly feeder service which connects the major markets of Colombia and Kingston in Jamaica. Via APL global linehaul services at the key transshipment hubs of Cartagena and Kingston, the new CBX service will enable reliable cargo movements between Asia, the Caribbean and the United States East Coast.

“As one of the most connected transshipment ports in the Caribbean, Cartagena and Kingston are central to the design of the new CBX service. Through the two transshipment hubs, the CBX service will offer our customers high levels of connectivity and added assurance of reliability via APL’s dedicated connecting services to key ports of Asia and the United States. Complemented by our strong reefer capabilities, this new service will enhance APL’s Latin America trade coverage and enable us to serve our customers more comprehensively,” said Efrain Osorio, APL Regional Director of Latin America & Caribbean Trade.

The new CBX service, which calls the ports of Kingston, Cartagena, Barranquilla and Santa Marta, will commence its first sailing from Cartagena on 11 November 2016.
