Connecting Denmark to the world

MSC Denmark was established in 1995 and has become a market-leading brand within the industry, both in Denmark and worldwide. 

Container depots owned by MSC's logistics arm, MEDLOG, were opened in Aarhus and Copenhagen in 2019 and 2020. This was part of the company’s strategy to offer our customers reliable, easy and fast access to a wide range of equipment.   

Our aim is to offer industry-leading, end-to-end tailored logistic solutions – cooperating with some of the best providers within their fields, such as trucking companies and providers of customs services.

Pesatura del container (VGM)

Tutti gli uffici locali di MSC forniscono bilance certificate per registrare e verificare il peso del container (massa lorda verificata o VGM) in linea con le normative SOLAS (Safety of Lives at Sea). Le istruzioni VGM sono obbligatorie per tutte le spedizioni per motivi di sicurezza e gli operatori navali possono caricare un container solo se il suo peso è stato debitamente verificato. Contatta la squadra locale MSC per maggiori informazioni e supporto.
