ONE unveils new Transpacific service

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced the launch of the Asia Pacific 1 (AP1) service, a new route connecting Asia with the United States West Coast.

The ocean carrier decided to introduce this new service to meet the sustained growth of US import volumes from Asia to the US West Coast, aiming to strengthen its foothold in the transpacific market by expanding its coverage.

The AP1 service introduces direct routes from Taipei and Shekou to the US West Coast, enhancing ONE's overall service network. The return leg of this service boasts a rapid transit from the US West Coast back to Vietnam, with an expected transit time of 19 days to Haiphong and 22 days to Cai Mep.

The full port rotation of the new service will be Haiphong (Vietnam) – Cai Mep (Vietnam) – Shekou (China) – Xiamen (China) – Taipei (China) – Ningbo (China) – Shanghai (China) – Los Angeles (US) – Oakland (US) – Shekou – Haiphong.

Complementing our existing product mix, we are dedicated to delivering outstanding, reliable, and holistic services."

The inaugural sailing for AP1 service is expected to commence in late Spring, around April or May.
