Averitt Express expanded the origin points in its Asia-Memphis Express less-than-container load service to Hong Kong and South China.
"This next phase of expansion shows the continued demand for consistent, reliable LCL service from Asia," said Charlie McGee, Averitt''s vice president of international development. "We expect to add more origin points in the future."
Averitt rolled out the service last July, with the service originating in Shanghai and Shenzen.
Containers are loaded in Asia and booked directly to Memphis, Tenn., via the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Shipments are deconsolidated at Memphis and funneled into Averitt''s LTL network and moved directly to customers.
