CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, has announced the launch of a new weekly LCL (Less-than-Container Load) service from Singapore to New York. This is the first guaranteed weekly service direct to the U.S. from Singapore as part of the company’s initiative to enhance its LCL offerings serving Trans-pacific needs. 

The weekly direct sailing service will take approximately 23 days from port to port, providing customers with predictability and better control of their cargo movement. CEVA will ensure track and trace visibility of all cargo shipments from origin to destination. The service is also complemented by consolidation services from Penang to Singapore before moving the load to New York. 

CEVA’s Lynnda Loo, Head of Ocean Freight for Singapore and Malaysia said: “We are excited to roll out a weekly LCL service from Singapore to New York, in response to customer feedback. Singapore, being strategically located in the region, is a key hub for CEVA’s LCL services, with ongoing weekly services directly to Shanghai, Pusan, Chittagong and other destinations. We will continue to increase the number of destinations for Ocean Freight to provide our customers with greater flexibility and choice.”

Customers will also benefit from the availability of door-to-door trucking service from New York to 51 destinations in the U.S. through CEVA’s integrated supply chain services.  

“Once the container arrives in New York, we utilize a 100% all-motor truck network to service the 51 destinations up and down the East Coast and U.S. Midwest.  We decrease our transits into the Midwest by an average of five days versus a routing over Los Angeles,” said Robert Braun, LCL Director for CEVA in North America.

CEVA recently started a guaranteed weekly LCL service from its newly opened Antwerp gateway in Belgium to New York as well. Recognizing customers’ shipping needs, the company aims to continue developing its LCL consolidation network and plans an additional 40 new direct global services by the end of 2015.

CEVA, one of the world’s leading non-asset based supply chain management companies, designs and implements industry leading solutions for large and medium-size national and multinational companies.  Approximately 42,000 employees in more than 170 countries are dedicated to delivering effective and robust supply chain solutions across a variety of sectors where CEVA applies its operational expertise to provide best-in-class services across its integrated network.
