USA Trades Service Announcement


For the past 8 years, ANL has operated our North American services to/from Oceania under the USL brand with ANL Singapore Pte Ltd (ANL) as the carrier per the Bill of Lading. ANL’s North American services have been very successful rapidly becoming a respected carrier in the Oceania/North America trade. We thank our large, loyal customer base in both North America and Oceania for their continued support.


Following on from CMA CGM’s purchase of APL, it has been decided that our North America/Oceania services will in future be marketed as ANL rather than USL. In addition, some activities in North America will be restructured with sales activities to be handled by APL, staffed by the existing ANL-USL sales staff members. The North American trade and pricing team will remain in Newport Beach, focusing on Oceania import pricing and contracting, unchanged from today.


Back Office functions including documentation, operations and customer service, will be supported by CMA CGM America using the same systems and processes currently in place.


In Australia and New Zealand, there will be no change to the ANL North American services and systems. ANL will continue to operate to/from West Coast North America via the existing PSW and PNW services and East Coast North America cargo to/from Philadelphia, New York and Savannah on the fortnightly PAD service.


In Australia and New Zealand, all import and export communications and documentation will be via ANL or our back office service providers CCAAA/CCANZ, unchanged from how you deal with ANL today.


For your North American agents and clients, we will as soon as possible advise updated contact details.


In the meantime should you require any further information, please contact your local ANL sales contact.
