MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company is improving transit times on its MedUSEC service from the western Mediterranean to the US east coast. Starting in March, the new MedUSEC service is expected to reach New York from the major transshipment hub of Sines in the market-leading time of just seven days.
The new rotation, which removes previous calls at La Spezia and Boston, and adds a new call at Tangiers, is:
Tangiers – Valencia – Gioia Tauro – Naples – Leghorn – Genoa – Valencia – Algeciras – Sines – New York – Baltimore – Norfolk – Savannah – Charleston.
At the same time, MSC’s MEDGULF westbound service will call at Algeciras; and the eastbound service will call at both Miami and Algeciras, as part of the following rotation:
Sines – Algeciras – Barcelona – Gioia Tauro – Naples – La Spezia – Barcelona – Valencia – Algeciras – Sines – Freeport – Port Everglades – Veracruz – Altamira – Houston – New Orleans – Miami – Freeport.
