MSC exchanges one feeder service for two ocean
The shipping company has altered its Baltic network and will now directly call to Gdynia and Klaipėda with two worldwide deep sea services.
The East Africa and Indian Ocean Express will link the Polish and Lithuanian seaports with Antwerp, Le Havre, Fos-Sur-Mer, King Abdullah Port, Pointe Des Galets, Port Louis, Mombasa, Sines, and Bremerhaven.
The Australian Express, in turn, will have Gdynia and Klaipeda included in a loop together with Bremerhaven, Antwerp, Le Havre, La Spezia, Naples, Gioia Tauro, King Abdullah Port, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Fremantle, Singapore, Colombo, Salalah, Djibouti, Valencia, London Gateway, and Rotterdam.
The first service was inaugurated in the Baltic on 25 April with the arrival of the 334.07 m-long and 42.87 m-wide 8,204 TEU of capacity MSC Paris in Gdynia at the Baltic Container Terminal Gdynia. The latter was kicked off in Gdynia five days later by the 274.67 m-long and 40 m-wide 5,926 TEU MSC Carolina.
