MSC reshuffles Latin American loop
The Switzerland-based shipping company Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is adapting its USA-South America East Coast (USA-SAEC) service, starting in April with the "MSC Carolina" voyage 13R. The new rotation features new calls in Cristobal, Paranagua and Philadelphia.
MSC intends improve its offer from southern Brazil to the US East Coast, as well as offering a direct call at key ports for fresh produce in the USA. In contrast, MSC has removed Port Everglades, Freeport and Caucedo (northbound call) from the previous rotation of this service.
The new port rotation will be Buenos Aires – Montevideo – Rio Grande – Navegantes – Paranagua – Santos – Rio De Janeiro – Salvador – Suape – Cristobal – Philadelphia – New York – Norfolk – Baltimore- Charleston – Savannah – Caucedo – Santos. (mw)
