Upcoming Changes in Relation to Strategic Cooperation with SM Line

MSC would like to announce upcoming changes in relation to current strategic cooperation with SM LINE on the Transpacific trade. 

Please be informed that the slot swapping agreement between SM LINE and the 2M alliance partners on Asia to USA West Coast services will end with effect from 8 May 2022.  Consequently, MSC will cease the slot agreement with SM Line commercialised by MSC as the Rose service.   

Current services covered by MSC, and those of the 2M network, will offer alternative coverage. 

MSC will continue to offer Vancouver through our Eagle, Maple and Chinook services, and Seattle through our Chinook service.  MSC’s exclusive Portland call will be offered on our Mustang standalone service. 

Should you have any questions, please contact your local MSC representatives in our global network of more than 500 offices.
