Saipan! The ship is in!

By Nancy I. Maanao

(Tumon, Guam) Store shelves looking empty? Worried you'll run out of food and (ahem) toilet paper? Not to fear. APL is here!

Actually, the APL Saipan is on Saipan right now, unloading its ship full of containers to restock the store shelves of the NMI. In this video, you can see gantry cranes already off loading containers and workers guiding the process.

According to Charlie Hermosa, president of APL Guam, that ship will be coming to Guam, along with another ship full of containers, before heading out to the other islands of Micronesia.

There's no need to panic and hoard, Micronesia. APL has our back.
