MSC Divert Cargo to Gulftainer Terminal within Umm Qasr Port

Please be advised that MSC will temporarily suspend calls to Basra Multipurpose Terminal (BMT) in Umm Qasr as a result of ongoing congestion.

MSC will transfer its operations to Gulftainer’s ‘ICT terminal’, located in the northern area of the port. This change will take effect from the arrival of MSC Giselle (Voyage 721R), ETA Umm Qasr 25th May 2017, which operates on the ‘New Falcon Service’.

This temporary change of terminal will allow us to bypass congestion and ensure we continue to offer you stable and reliable transport services.

Today, MSC continues to operate regular, weekly direct services from China, Far East, and South East Asia to worldwide origins via Jebel Ali. 

For more information, please contact your local MSC office.
