Sentosa Service adds Direct Call at Haiphong

04/28/2023

To provide direct and streamlined access between Southeast Asia and the U.S. West Coast, MSC is revising the rotation of its Sentosa service. 

The service will now include new port rotations from Haiphong and will no longer make port calls at Port Klang, Tanjung Pelepas, Singapore and Da Chan Bay. However, the Southeast Asia ports will continue to be connected to the Sentosa service via Vung Tau, which is served by our Intra Asia network.

The new call at Haiphong will provide MSC customers with improved connections and transit times between Southeast Asia and the U.S. West Coast.

The new rotation of the service will be as follows:

Laem Chabang – Vung Tau – Haiphong – Long Beach – Oakland – Busan – Laem Chabang

Transit times will be Haiphong to Long Beach in 16 days and Haiphong to Oakland in 21 days.  

The first vessel on this new rotation will be MSC ORNELLA voyage number FV319E, due to arrive in Laem Chabang on 17 May.

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