MSC New Service between East Coast South America & U.S. Mexican Gulf means faster transit times for customers

06/15/2015

Geneva, Switzerland, 15 June 2015. We are pleased to announce improvements to MSC’s East Coast South America (ECSA) service to and from the US & Mexican Gulf, effective from the first week of July.  MSC’s current Amazon Service (Gulf to ECSA) and our US Gulf feeder service will be replaced with the following services:

Gulf to ECSA String I
Deploying 7 x 5,500 TEU vessels between them, MSC and Hamburg Süd will make the roundtrip from US/MEX Gulf to Brazil via Panama & Colombia in 49 days.

Gulf to ECSA String II
It will take just 56 days for MSC to make the roundtrip from US/MEX Gulf to Argentina/Uruguay & Brazil ports in collaboration with Hapag Lloyd and NYK, deploying 8 x 5,500 TEU vessels.

“Thanks to the new direct connections and increased port coverage our customers will benefit from significantly reduced transit times from US & Mexican Gulf to Brazil as well as a direct service to Argentina & Uruguay from the Gulf compared to the previous Amazon Service,” explains Alfonso Fusillo, Senior VP at MSC, “This improved service now offers full coverage of all ECSA ports.”

Service Highlights:

  • New direct connections from/to Gulf to Argentina & Uruguay
  • New direct Brazilian ports from/to Gulf (Itapoa, Salvador, Suape)
  • Significantly reduced transit time from Gulf to Brazil versus previous Amazon Service
  • New Direct service to Cartagena from ECSA
  • Full coverage of all ECSA ports
