Cotton is essential for products such as clothes, home furnishings, fishnets, medical supplies, and much more. This white fluffy crop has been at the heart of global trade since the earliest stages of civilization. In our modern world, many countries require the safe and reliable transportation of cotton and its products.


MSC understands the special care and attention that your cotton requires. As a result, our teams are well equipped to meet your needs around the globe. With access to 500 ports of call, a fleet of 700 vessels, and more than 600 offices worldwide, you can trust MSC to be your dedicated cotton delivery partner.


We have worked hard to upgrade our fleet capacity to meet customer demand by adding new vessels, routes, and ports of call. We are also innovating daily to provide digital solutions, such as our electronic bill of lading (eBL) which expedites delivery, reduces paper waste, and streamlines processing.


At MSC, we are also aware of cotton’s dependency on temperature and weather conditions, which often results in varying production numbers from season to season. Keeping these important factors in mind, we have developed scalable logistics solutions that can be adapted to production volumes and transactional needs. Our commitment goes beyond safe transport, implementing sustainable solutions so that no product goes to waste.


Our key strengths are:

  • Dedicated VIP desk and specialized customer service for cotton
  • Outstanding global port coverage and connectivity
  • Loading close to point of origin
  • Competitive transit times
  • Special ramp service

We understand the value of cotton as a key commodity for our global economy. Our experienced, world-class teams have devised solutions for its safe, reliable, and fast transport.
