Temporary Service Suspension - Sequoia Service


Temporary Service Suspension - Sequoia Service


Due to significantly reduced demand for shipments into the US West Coast during the past weeks, MSC will be taking certain actions in order to strengthen our offered transit times and reliability. We will therefore temporarily suspend our Sequoia service under 2M until further notice to alleviate existing port congestion.

As from vessel GERNER MAERSK, voyage 242N – PF position 18 October in Ningbo, and until further notice, there will be no more sailings on the Sequoia service.

The Sequoia service will be merged into the Jaguar service, with the following rotation:

Shekou – Nansha – Yantian – Ningbo – Shanghai – Long Beach - Busan

All cargo currently carried on the Sequoia service can hence be carried on the Jaguar and Orient services, with similar or better transit times. 

This temporary suspension and associated network changes will also help remove the last remaining waiting times for berthing in Los Angeles. 

Should you have any questions, please contact your local MSC representatives in our global network of more than 675 offices.
