MSC revises Asia, Europe services

Effective March 2019, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company is planning significant revisions to its ocean network to better serve shippers moving cargo between Asia and Europe.

The shipping line said that it will phase in additional vessels to existing loops on the trade. MSC added that the deployment of these extra assets on its services underscores its commitment to operating a stable and ever-improving network within the existing constraints facing all carriers, such as congestion, bad weather and other unexpected disruptions.

In an official customer announcement, it said: “We can only assume that container terminal congestion at the main ports of the trade will continue to worsen, leading us to anticipate and incorporate longer time buffers in the schedule, in terms of port stays and speed at sea.”

An overview of the new version of the network can be viewed here
