MSC is delighted to announce enhancements to its Israel Express Service, effective from end- September. The new-look service will call at the Israeli ports of Ashdod and Haifa. The service is part of the VSA agreement with ZIM. MSC operates 3 out of a total of 5 vessels.

This updated rotation will enable MSC to offer a regular and reliable service all year round both on Southbound and Northbound routes, with improved transit times to and from the Israeli ports of Ashdod and Haifa:

  • to Ashdod for Southbound cargo: the revised schedule in NWC ports will offer improved timing for cargo deliveries to ports of loading (POL) and a shorter transit time to Ashdod
  • from Ashdod for the export reefer cargo:  the second call in Ashdod on Thursday is fully dedicated to reefer cargo. It enables cargo shipments at the end of the week and offers an improved transit time to NWC ports.

First sailing is MSC Marta 540A scheduled from Felixstowe on 29th September.
