MSC is delighted to have been selected as a key partner of Peel Ports in its recent berthing trials and official launch of its £400m deep sea terminal Liverpool2 earlier this month.
The MV MSC Florida became the first vessel to call at Liverpool2 on its NWC - Liverpool - Portbury feeder service to officially open the terminal at its launch celebrations in November 2016.
Representatives of MSC attended the event along with approx. 300 guests from shipping lines, freight forwarders, port authorities and other port users.
The terminal was officially opened by the Secretary of State for International Trade, Dr Liam Fox.
As the largest user of the Port of Liverpool, MSC has invested heavily in local services via the port throughout the past 15 years, providing customers with:
- Weekly services between Liverpool and Antwerp and Liverpool and Le Havre, connecting North West England to our global trade services
- Weekly direct services between Liverpool and Canada
- New weekly service to Sines, Portugal, offering the fastest transits to / from Mexico, South Africa, USA, North Mediterranean and the Canary Islands.
Following the launch of Liverpool2, MSC is continually exploring the new opportunities presented by this upgrade, and will in the meantime maintain its successful global services to / from Liverpool.
