MSC Revises its IPAK US Network

MSC is pleased to announce the enhancement of its Middle East, Indian Subcontinent & U.S. East Coast network, which now includes 3 distinct services.

MSC has revised the rotation of the existing Indus Express service and Indusa service and is also launching a new Indus 2 service, starting on 30 August 2021:

  • The Indus Express service will focus on Northwest India, Pakistan, the Middle East and U.S. East Coast markets.
  • The Indusa service will connect Southeast India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh to U.S. East coast, with a call at Colombo in Sri Lanka to reinforce our offering for cargo shippers in the Indian subcontinent.
