In order to continually improve our services between Asia and East Coast South America, MSC is pleased to announce that we have entered into a new Vessel Sharing Agreement (VSA) with Maersk Line and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL). Under the VSA, 22 vessels will operate on two new loops, offering extensive coverage on the following routes:
Loop 1 - Ipanema: Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chiwan, Yantian, Hong Kong, Singapore, Santos, Paranagua, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Rio Grande, Paranagua, Santos, Coega, Singapore, Hong Kong, Busan
Loop 2 - Sentosa: Chiwan, Yantian, Hong Kong, Singapore, Santos, Sepetiba, Itajai, Navegantes, Sao Francisco do Sul, Santos, Sepetiba, Cape Town, Durban, Singapore, Chiwan
Transit times and final commercial schedules will be communicated once all berthing arrangements are finalised with the terminals.
The new VSA kicks off with the first vessel departure from the Far East during the first week of July 2015. It replaces all other VSAs in place on this route, which will expire at the end of June.
