As part of our ongoing prudent approach to managing capacity amid the COVID-19 pandemic, MSC has decided to prolong the temporary suspension of its Elephant service.
The service, which normally connects Thailand with the U.S. East Coast, was suspended in mid-April in order to match network capacity with the reduction in demand for cargo shipments due to COVID-19, as we previously communicated. We will extend the suspension until the end of July and will only resume the service when there is a sufficient increase in market demand to justify this.
Customers with cargo to ship between Asia and the U.S. East Coast along the above route may continue to place bookings with MSC with minimal disruption as we have contingency plans in place with alternative services.
