CEVA Logistics has opened two new lanes from Houston in the U.S. to both Singapore and Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates, as part of its less-than-container Load (LCL) ocean service.

The move aims to increase the international freight forwarder’s share of own consolidated boxes over the use of co-loaded lanes, the company said in a February 13 statement.

The Houston-to-Singapore lane includes direct service loading in Houston, with cargo also being consolidated from Dallas and New Orleans to ensure sufficient economies of scale.

Sailing from Los Angeles, with a transit time of about 40 days, the service provides direct access to over 100 transshipment destinations throughout Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent, managed by CEVA in Singapore.

The first Houston-to-Singapore sailing will take place on February 24.
The first sailing from Houston to Jebel Ali took place on February 7, with cargo consolidated from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas and New Orleans, and a transit time of about 34 days. This service reduces unnecessary additional handling compared with sending via New York, while reducing the dwell time between cargo receipt and sailing, CEVA said.

“As we continue to expand our LCL services we are reinforcing CEVA’s position as a true end-to-end logistics provider, connecting strategic locations through our global network and gateways. These two new lanes within our oceanfreight portfolio are of particular interest to energy companies as they link key geographies for that sector through our integrated network, while decreasing cargo handling,” said Greg Scott, CEVA’s global LCL director.
