APL launches Eagle Express X RailFlash

[ February 28, 2019   //   ]

APL has launched Eagle Express X RailFlash, a new service providing express rail transfer for shipments arriving from China at the Port of Los Angeles to Chicago, Memphis, Dallas and Kansas City.

APL’s EXX RailFlash dramatically shaves days off shipment’s transit into four U.S. inland destinations. Upon vessel arrival in Los Angeles, EXX cargo receives priority discharge and drayage on chassis to a rail ramp, and daily express rail departures to Chicago, Memphis, Dallas and Kansas City.

The service is billed as providing 99% discharge from vessel within 12 hours from berth; daily rail departures from Los Angeles; and that at least 4 days will be saved from total transit from China to U.S. inland.
