Maersk selects Shanghai as LCL shipments gateway

Maersk announces Shanghai as LCL shipments global gateway

A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has announced that it would use Shanghai as its new global gateway for Less-than-Container-Load (LCL) shipments.

With this breakthrough, Maersk has taken the initiative to test the new process and create new route combinations, making it the first firm to use Shanghai as its LCL key global gateway.

To improve service coverage at the Shanghai gateway, the carrier is expanding its LCL global consolidation network.

This development reportedly includes the addition of over 50 additional trade lanes that connect to and from Shanghai, resulting in over 200 direct LCL routes enabled by the Shanghai port.
