APL today unveiled the new Japan Russia Express (JRX) service, the only weekly Japan-Russia ocean freight service to be available in the marketplace.
A jointly operated service with TG FESCO, the JRX service will be characterised by its unparalleled transit times. Russian-destined cargoes from Yokohama to Vostonchny and Vladivostock will be delivered in as soon as seven and nine days respectively. Shipments from Kobe to the two same Russian ports will arrive in just four and six days respectively.
From Vostonchny and Vladivostock, cargoes onboard the JRX service may be easily moved via the Trans-Siberian Railway to Central Russia and into the European Union. Meanwhile, shippers from Japan and Russia may also plug into APL’s extensive service network for global market access via Busan where the JRX service will make a port stop.
APL’s JRX will commence sailing from Yokohama on 24 August on the following rotation: Vostochny – Vladivostok – Yokohama – Shimizu – Nagoya - Kobe – Busan- Vostochny
