MSC launches new Far East service to Hamburg

MSC is installing a new service between the Far East and Northern Europe, and Hamburg will benefit from it.

MSC will be launching a new, self-operated service in future. This can be seen as an anticipation of next year when the “2M” alliance with Maersk ends in January. Or it could be an early gift to Hamburg before the Aponte company finally joins terminal operator HHLA. [ds_preview]

The service, which runs from China via Vietnam to Northern Europe, has been given the name “Britannia”, perhaps because it calls at Liverpool. But Hamburg can also look forward to additional ship calls. Bremerhaven, on the other hand, where MSC actually has a dedicated terminal in the form of the MSC Gate, is not part of the route.

Hamburg yes, Bremerhaven no

On the so-called North Range, the freighters also dock at the MSC hubs in Rotterdam and Antwerp, while eastbound there is a connection to ports in Scandinavia and the Baltic states, MSC explains. “This will extend our coverage from China and Vietnam to the UK and the North West Continent.”

The “MSC Denisse X” will make its first voyage on 1 July. The full rotation is as follows Shanghai – Ningbo – Yantian – Vung Tau – Liverpool – Rotterdam – Antwerp – Hamburg – London Gateway – Singapore – Shanghai.

Britannia, MSC, Hamburg, Dienst, Fernost

This customer service, connecting Asia directly to Liverpool, complements the other direct services to London and Felixstowe
