An express service now connects China to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore in seven days via optimised routing according to CEVA Logistics.
The transport and logistics company has expanded its rapid Less Than Truckload (LTL) services from China to South East Asia.
The service, the company said in a statement, is designed to serve customers who do not have sufficient volumes to support Full Truckload Shipments (FTL).
Small to medium enterprises, large local companies and multinational corporations are expected to benefit from CEVA’s new service.
The lead time, through optimised routing, is seven days from Shanghai to Singapore.
Operating twice a week on Tuesday and Friday, it will accept Li-Battery shipments (DG Class 9 Li-Batteries). Drivers on the service are trained for this task and hold internationally recognised Dangerous Goods licenses for safe cross-border transport.
The Rapid LTL is reported to connect China’s regional hubs via Shenzhen to key cities in Southeast Asia such as Hanoi, Bangkok, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. All shipments are closely monitored by CEVA’s control towers for real-time tracking door to door from China right across Southeast Asia.
CEVA Logistics claims to be one of Asia’s largest players in cross-border transportation and leverages its comprehensive network to move more than 25,000 TEUs annually.
“The launch of our Rapid LTL Connection services in Asia is another testament to our commitment of continuously innovating with our services,” said CEVA Logistics SEAPAC Ground & Rail Leader Product Leader, Michael Leong.
“We are confident that this new lead time-efficient and cost-effective solution will enable our customers to adapt to the increasingly evolving needs of their supply chains in a flexible and scalable way.”
