MSC has outstanding global port coverage – we go where our customers need us to go. Our fleet of more than 440 vessels sail 200 different routes between 500 ports in 155 countries.
This enormous variety of destinations and vessels ensures great choice and flexibility for our clients. But beyond this extensive port range, MSC has invested heavily in its own strategically positioned container terminals around the world. This puts us in a far stronger position to ensure customers receive their cargo on time and on demand. Having these ‘home’ terminals means we are able to prioritise vessels whenever necessary, and gives us greater control of the supply chain. It also provides our clients with added reassurance on the secure transit of their cargo.
Right now MSC has its own container terminals in Africa, Australia, Brazil, China, Europe, India, the Middle East and the United States of America.
MSC has also invested in a number of ‘dry ports’. These ports are designed to accelerate cargo delivery in cities that experience high levels of congestion. In these instances, MSC customers’ cargo is transported to the dry ports for collection, thus avoiding hours of unnecessary waiting. It’s another example of MSC investing time, money and expertise in order to provide a faster, more flexible service.
In order to accommodate all of our customers’ needs MSC operates a global network of container depots designed to provide a range of storage, maintenance, packing and unpacking services. This gives our customers a greater degree of flexibility and control over their distribution networks.
