American President Lines (APL) and Tondex Shipping Co have signed a connecting carrier agreement to provide a feeder service between Shantou and Yantian. It will offer a more reliable and cost-effective service to shippers moving cargo out of Shantou.

Minhai No 329 started serving the route this month. The fixed-day, bi-weekly service leaves Shantou every Tuesday and Friday, arriving at Yantian every Wednesday and Saturday. It will connect to APL's line-haul services to US, Europe and Singapore.
