With the specific arrival date for the designated inland destinations set upon booking with APL, shippers are offered a solution to best manage their supply chain cycle.

“APL is excited to introduce Eagle Guaranteed as one of our value-added services. It guarantees our customers day-definite arrival of their full container loads at various inland locations in the Americas, offering them superior speed-to-market. Importantly, Eagle Guaranteed is an assurance of vessel space and equipment for their cargo, a critical advantage especially during the peak trading season,” said Jesper Stenbak, APL Senior Vice President of Trans-Pacific Trade.

Eagle Guaranteed marks APL’s confidence in its fully-owned and controlled EX1 service. The US flagged service has been arriving punctually with an optimal container volume for on-time rail departures from the GGS Terminal each week. Coupled with APL’s Eagle Stow service that enables cargo availability within 12 hours of vessel cargo operation and ready-cargo on-chassis from the terminal, APL-dedicated trains have been rapidly loaded on-dock for prompt transits to the inland destinations.

Jesper elaborated, “Our APL-operated EX1 service is synonymous with reliability. It has a near perfect on time arrival record at the port of Los Angeles where we keep up the momentum with expedited cargo availability and fast inland connections through APL-dedicated LinerTrain services. With Eagle Guaranteed, APL is raising the bar of our EX1 service to a time-definite one.”
