MSC plans to expand its Sentosa service to connect the main ports of China directly with India’s ports of Mundra and Nhava Sheva and with Colombo in Sri Lanka. The expanded service will provide improved access to the north Indian market for businesses.

Integrating the ports of Mundra, Nhava Sheva and Colombo in the Sentosa service will meet critical transportation demands within the market. Furthermore, it will bring significant benefits through increased opportunity and access to global markets for regional and local economies, farmers, and businesses.

Furthermore, by offering access to an increased network of Asian ports and markets – and improving interconnectivity between them – the new Sentosa rotation will also create a direct connection from north India to the main Southeast Asia ports and the U.S. West Coast. Through this service expansion, MSC aims to provide more cargo transportation solutions for businesses that serve the ever-growing markets of Southeast Asia and India. 

MSC MARA will be the first vessel westbound from the U.S. west coast to China and India. MSC expects it to depart Long Beach on 5 March on voyage FV309W. The ship is scheduled to call at Qingdao on 28 March, Ningbo on 1 April and Nhava Sheva on 17 April. The first sailing eastbound from north India will be MSC SOLA, which will depart Nhava Sheva on 13 February on voyage FV307R. The schedule includes a call at Shekou on 8 March, and the ship should reach Long Beach on 26 March.

The full rotation is:

Port Klang – Singapore –Tanjung Pelepas – Laem Chabang – Vung Tau – Da Chan Bay – Shekou – Long Beach – Oakland – Busan –Qingdao –Shanghai – Ningbo – Kaohsiung – Shekou – Singapore – Nhava Sheva – Mundra – Colombo – Port Klang
