As part of MSC’s ongoing commitment to enhance global connectivity to the UK, we are pleased to announce a recent update to our Türkiye to/from UK West Coast service. This vital link between Türkiye and Liverpool now extends its reach to include Portbury and Greenock, solidifying its status as the only direct service in the market to connect Greece and Türkiye to the UK.
This development offers customers a reliable route for cargo transportation between the UK and European markets as well as supporting the reduction of carbon emissions across their supply chain. With weekly direct calls, this revised rotation provides greater flexibility for customers shipping cargo to and from the UK West Coast.
In addition to a direct service offering, we are delighted to provide customers with reliable ‘mother vessel to mother vessel’ transhipments between India, Pakistan and the Far East, and the key UK West Coast ports of Liverpool, Greenock & Portbury (via Sines). This expansion further boosts the UK’s connectivity to Asia, presenting customers with unparalleled options for efficient and optimised shipping solutions.
Utilising our market-leading regional port network, MSC offers a fast end-to-end service, connecting Aliaga to Liverpool (12 days), Tekirdag to Greenock (17 days) and Valencia to Bristol (14 days). Our dedicated intermodal operations via road and rail across the UK, Portugal, Türkiye, Spain and Greece offer customers a more flexible, efficient and sustainable way of moving cargo inland.
The full rotation is as follows:
