APL today announced the launch of Eagle Guaranteed, a
promise of day-definite arrival of shipment on the Eagle Express
(EX1) service via the Global Gateway South (GGS) Terminal in Los
Angeles to the rail yards of Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, El Paso,
Kansas City and Memphis in the Americas. 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."
