Le Havre – a strategic port for Northern business

MSC has operated out of Le Havre since 1993. The port’s geographical strategic importance for customers has fuelled significant phases of growth and investment from MSC. This has included the development of a dedicated Le Havre office and a home terminal (TNMSC).  At this terminal, MSC enjoys priority berthing for a modern fleet of ultra-large containerships.  The port also provides a regular feeder service to Montoir (three-day transit).

Our Le Havre office is home to over 175 staff, every one of whom is dedicated to providing customers with unrivalled levels of care and expertise.

ALBATROS – Our Direct Service from Asia to Le Havre

MSC is one of the few carriers to offer direct services between Far East and Le Havre. Our ALBATROS service offers fast and reliable transits times from China, South Korea and Malaysia to Le Havre, as well as connections to Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan.
