MSC to Add Maple Service on Transpacific Route

Starting from September 15, 2016, Switzerland-headquartered Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) plans to launch a new service on the Transpacific Trade in an effort to “assist shippers following the recent Hanjin announcement.” 

The move comes after the South Korean shipping company, Hanjin Shipping, decided to file for court receivership on August 31, 2016.

MSC’s new Maple service will include six 5,000 TEU vessels calling at Busan (South Korea), Shanghai, Yantian (China), Prince Rupert (Canada), Busan.

The first two sailings will call Yantian, Shanghai, Busan and Long Beach (US) in order to cover “the anticipated high initial demand.”

MSC joined efforts with Maersk Line, which together form the 2M Alliance, to cover Hanjin’s service. Maersk Line also announced its plans set up a new service between Asia and the United States West Coast, the TP1 service, effective September 15, 2016. The service will cover Yantian, Shanghai, Busan and Los Angeles/Long Beach.
