MSC: Asia-North Europe Route Enhancement

MSC: Asia-North Europe Route Enhancement

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), a global leading container shipping company, announces the enhancement of services between Asia and Northern Europe. MSC is pleased to announce the revision of its 5 services operating on the route. The decision was made to improve MSC’s connection to the world’s largest trade lane, strengthen the the company’s already-renowned reliability, and enhance transit times for customers.

MSC, who already provides 5 different service routes between Northern Europe to Asia (Albatross, Swan, Silk, Lion, and Shogun), announces the enhancement of the Albatross service, which will result in a major improvement of cargo shipping between Germany and China. The service starts in Germany and now includes a direct service from North China to Hamburg, as well as optimized connections with Scandinavia and the Baltics. Westbound transit times will improve by as much as four days from the main Asian markets to Bremerhaven and Rotterdam, and Eastbound services from Rotterdam to Shanghai are to see transit cut to five days.

Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk, United Kingdom will benefit from changes to the Swan service with direct services from Shanghai, Ningbo and Qingdao. MSC’s strategic hub of Antwerp is included on four of the five loops; Albatross, Shogun (EB) and Lion, Swan (WB). The improvements to the network are anticipated to be fully phased-in during the third quarter of 2016.
