MSC is pleased to announce that as part of our continued efforts to optimize our global service network, we will be making changes to the rotation of the EastCan Express Service. As from June 22nd sailing, we will be calling Caucedo and Houston directly from Montreal and Saint John, giving us the flexibility to tranship in both Caucedo and Freeport.
We will have 5 vessels with capacity of 2,800 TEUs each on this service (35 days roundtrip), with MSC as a standalone operator.
As from MSC Monica CG526A, the rotation will become: Montreal, Saint John, Freeport, Caucedo, Houston, Montreal.
New transit times will be as follows:

As a result, we will improve our transit times to different Latin America destinations from Canada.
