APL Guaranteed™ Continental
The first ocean-truck full container load service with day-definite deliveries and service guarantee
Traditional Full Container Load (FCL) services rely on railroads for inland transportation, adding transit time when the final destination is not close to a rail hub. For companies in the U.S., there is now an alternative with day-definite deliveries and a money-back service guarantee.
APL Logistics has created Guaranteed Continental with APL – the first ocean-truck FCL service for the contiguous U.S. Shipment arrives at your door, not an airport or third-party warehouse. If even one day late, you are eligible for a 20% refund – guaranteed.
The key to APL Guaranteed Continental service
Through an innovative team-driver solution of having two drivers per container for continuous service, we deliver faster transit times over greater distances. As we control all the assets - from container to ship, to terminal - containers are first-stowed, with a team-driver waiting to move quickly upon discharge.
One service, two options
Intact services - Container is picked up by a team truck driver from our Los Angeles or Seattle ocean terminal and driven to consignee locations. Intact service gives significant savings over air freight, unbroken seal, priority loading and unloading and faster transit times than other ocean services.
Transload services - Container is drayed from our Los Angeles ocean terminal to our deconsolidation center and the shipment is transloaded 1:1 onto a domestic trailer, then team-driven to consignee locations. Transload service offers the same high-level service as Intact but at a much lower price since you avoid container re-positioning costs.
Dedicated, centralized customer support monitors your shipments and automatically alerts you to any exceptions. With web-based tracking at your desktop, showing shipment details, transit updates, and customs status are available 24 hours a day.
