MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. wishes to advise clients of recent events that have taken place at the Port of Oakland which affects our weekly West Coast USA service.
On 19th January 2016, the Port of Oakland announced that Ports America intended to terminate its 50 year lease at the Outer Harbor Terminal. Consequently vessel operations would cease within 30 days of this announcement.
Nevertheless, discussions have already commenced with regards to the transition to another terminal. As a slot partner on the service, MSC is still awaiting further advice from the vessel operators as to future terminal location in the Bay Area.
Further details will be advised as soon as they become known.
We thank you for your continued support during this time.
