The company’s Eagle Express X service will offer carriage of container cargo from Asia to Honolulu on alternate weeks.

 

    APL, part of the CMA CGM Group, said it will start serving the Hawaii market with its Eagle Express X (EXX) service.
      The transpacific service will carry cargo from Asia to Honolulu, but only after calling the Port of Los Angeles and only every other week.
    As APL is not a Jones Act carrier, it will not be able to carry cargo from the U.S. West Coast to Hawaii. The new rotation for the EXX service on alternate weeks starting
Aug. 23 will be Yokohama – Busan – Ningbo – Shanghai – Los Angeles – Honolulu – Dutch Harbor – Yokohama. Transit times will be 18 and 19 days to Honolulu from Shanghai and Ningbo, respectively.
    APL has an existing weekly service connecting Asian ports and Hawaii called the Aloha Express with a Shanghai-Busan-Honolulu rotation, but the company said it will discontinue that service once the EXX starts calling Hawaii.

Any use of slow steaming should be done on a voluntary basis through the marketplace between the business interests involved. Without a recognition of the complete supply chain, mandated speed restrictions for all vessels at sea will be counterproductive.

The Port of Hamburg handled 2.3 million TEUs in the first quarter, which was a 6.4% growth in container handling. The U.S. became the port's second-largest partner in container traffic with 121,000 TEUs.
