APL introducing new “India Pakistan Express 2” service

APL today announced the launch of the India Pakistan Express 2 (IP2) service, a new weekly service that directly connects India, the Middle East and five major North European ports.

Designed to strengthen APL’s India Subcontinent offerings, the new IP2 service is supposed to enhance APL’s service coverage in the European markets of Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The India Pakistan Express 2 has also a direct link to the port of Hamburg and offers shippers an additional gateway into and out of the United Kingdom via London Gateway, complementing market access via Southampton and Felixstowe through APL’s India Pakistan Express service.

With IP2’s strategic port rotation at the transshipment hubs of Jeddah and Jebel Ali, shippers from the Middle East and Gulf regions can tap on APL’s global network at these relay ports for further connectivity to the vast European markets. Beyond ocean transportation, shippers on the IP2 service will have an optimal handling of outbound cargo from India through a network of inland container depots located across the country before heading for the ports of Mundra and Nhava Sheva.
