American President Lines (APL) has requested permission from the US Maritime Administration to operate two foreign-flag container vessels on its route between Kaohsiung and Fujairah. APL will replace four vessels on that route which are due to be returned to Lykes Line.

The American carrier has also sought permission to charter a third foreign-flag vessel for service in the region to replace two of its US-flag vessels which will go for drydock checks.
