MSC launches new southeast Asia-USWC service

Share This News Story:

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has introduced a new container shipping service, named Sentosa, in order to meet the demand for cargo between southeast Asia and the US west coast.

Mediterranean Shipping Co. (MSC), headquartered in Geneva, says it is introducing a new container shipping service that links Southeast Asia and the U.S. West Coast. The company says it seeks to improve reliability in the transpacific network “at a time when the entire market remains under considerable systemic pressure.”

The company says its Sentosa service is a dedicated line that links Southeast Asia with the Pacific South West market to “catalyze trade between countries such as Thailand and Vietnam and the U.S. West Coast.”

According to MSC, the Sentosa service “should enable a significantly improved transit time for MSC customers shipping goods between southeast Asia and California, ensuring that MSC retains a direct Laem Chabang – Long Beach call (in both directions) within its transpacific network. This compensates for the removal of a Laem Chabang – U.S. call on the Jaguar service, which is being announced separately.”

MSC says it expects this service to start in early April with the MSC Ornella, and its rotation will be Singapore, Tanjung Pelepas, Laem Chabang, Vung Tau, Long Beach, Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen and Singapore.
