As of September 2020, MSC has revised the rotation of the Indus Express service and launched a new Indusa service.

With the Indus Express service focusing on North West India, Pakistan, the Middle East and U.S. East Coast markets and the Indusa service connecting Southeast India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh to U.S. East coast, with a call at Colombo in Sri Lanka, we have reinforced our offering for cargo shippers in the Indian subcontinent.

Both services operate as standalone MSC services, offering competitive transit times from the Middle East and Indian subcontinent region to the U.S. East Coast and ensuring U.S. customers can benefit from the possibility to import cargo from anywhere in India, boosting predictability for effective supply chain planning.

Our Indus Express and Indusa services make MSC the only carrier with two direct services from the Indian Subcontinent to the USA.
