Introduced to expand APL’s network coverage of China with Indonesia, the new CS6 service complements APL’s China-Southeast Asia Service 1 (CS1) that serves the South China-Indonesia trade lane, to offer shippers a direct connection from key North China exports areas in Lianyungang and Qingdao to the major Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Surabaya. Coupled with its competitive transit times from Indonesia to Manila, the CS6 service provides a valuable intra-Asia proposition for APL customers’ shipping needs.

The first sailing of the new CS6 service will commence from Lianyungang on 26 April 2017 and call the ports of Lianyungang, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Shantou, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Surabaya, North and South Manila.
