Old Dominion Freight Line expanded its Pacific Promise less-than-container load service to 10 additional ports in eight countries in Asia. This follows a 40% increase in shipments from the continent in 2011.


The new ports are located in Manila, Philippines; Singapore; Jakarta and Surabaya Indonesia; Penang, Malaysia; Port Klang, Kuala Lumpur; Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam; Bangkok, Thailand; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; and Busan, Korea. With the expansion, Old Dominion now serves 23 ports in 10 countries throughout Asia.

Launched in China in 2009, Pacific Promise provides businesses with standard guaranteed transit times and simplified rates from the 23 ports in Asia to any destination in the United States. The service also includes port-to-door tracking of all shipments.

"In an average month, we move shipments between the U.S. and more than 40 countries, with a significant amount of that freight to and from Asia," says Greg Plemmons, vice president of OD-Global, an international shipping division of Old Dominion.
