APL has received delivery of the APL Charleston, sixth of twelve 9,200 TEUers from Korea's Daewoo yards, first ordered as 10 vessels in July 2010 by Singapore's Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) as ten 8,400 TEUers, then increased to 9,200 TEU a year later, reports Alphaliner.

The APL Charleston will join the West Asia Express (WAX/CMI) service, operated by APL and MOL, on which she will replace the 6,350-TEU APL Turkey, which then joins the Far East-Red Sea (REX/RSS) service operated by APL and PIL. The APL Charleston joins the already delivered APL Savannah.
