New Transpacific U.S. East Coast Network

MSC will update its Transpacific U.S. East Coast network with the aim to better manage the current industry-wide challenging market situation, which is generating congestion across the supply chain. By reshuffling our network, we aim to ensure faster rotations and enable our customers to better plan their supply chains.  

As such, we are introducing our new service, Liberty, calling Vung Tau and Yantian with direct connections to Charleston, Savannah and New York, with the first sailing from Vietnam on 22 May 2021.

Liberty service: Vung Tau – Yantian – Charleston – Savannah – New York – Singapore


We will also amend the rotations of our America and Emerald services.

Please find below our new leaner rotations which should improve the distribution of the cargo flows in our existing network and reduce exposure to some of the challenges in the current market environment. 

The rotation of the Amberjack, Elephant, Lone Star and Pelican services remain unchanged.

The updated rotations are detailed below:

America service: Hong Kong – Nansha – Yantian – Vung Tau – Singapore – New York – Savannah – Miami – Freeport – Tanjung Pelepas

Emerald service: Xiamen – Yantian – Shanghai – Busan – Cristobal – Savannah – Norfolk – New York – Singapore
