FOSTERING
INCLUSIVE TRADE

MSC plays a strategic role in enabling global trade and connecting economies, producers and consumers

Fostering Inclusive Trade

Enabling connection of local economies and fostering open and inclusive trade drives our investments, supports market accessibility and contributes to value generation. Sustainable development is inspiring our decision-making process as it is instrumental to securing organic growth and delivering support through global disruptions. We will increase our commitment to intermodal logistic solutions along the whole supply chain to better support our customers.
Keeping the world connected
MSC plays a strategic role in enabling global trade and connecting economies, producers and consumers. We create shared value by driving the growth of local economies and the small- and medium-sized businesses who rely on us to connect and facilitate trade at the national, regional and global levels. We collaborate with our partners and contribute to sustainable supply chains, building capacities and supporting local communities.
Delivering end-to-end logistics demands strong partnerships across the value chain, particularly at times of disruption and unprecedented logistics challenges. In 2021 MSC was proud to join the ongoing global effort to ensure equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines and related medical equipment, under the World Economic Forum Supply Chain and Transport Industry Charter in support of UNICEF and COVAX Vaccine Distribution
