Focusing on high-quality ‘can-do’ service and problem solving, MSC India has rapidly expanded its project cargo and breakbulk business. Among its many achievements, in February 2020 MSC India shipped three 30-metre, 42-tonne asphalt vacuum distillation scrubbers from India to Iraq. When other carriers were unable to help, leaving the scrubbers stranded in the Port of Mumbai for two months, MSC stepped in to transport them securely and efficiently to Umm Qasr in Iraq – exactly where they were needed.

MSC has 40 years’ experience handling breakbulk, oversized and heavy lift cargoes. MSC India successfully carries regular breakbulk cargo and shipped some of the largest packages weighing over 100 metric tons from Jawaharlal Nehru port and 70 metric tons from Mundra port respectively.
