MSC Cancels Asia-Black Sea Service

Swiss container line Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has cancelled its Great Sea service that operates between Asia and the Black Sea due to unexpectedly low demand out of Asia.

The service will cease operation on Asia export sailings from the first week of November.

Instead, MSC will provide a transshipment service between Asia and the Black Sea.

Cargo will be transshipped in Asyaport, which is located in Barbaros, Tekirdağ, Turkey.

”We expect to offer good transit times, and full schedule details will be provided in due course. MSC remains committed to supporting customers, and while current demand is not sufficient to meet the costs of running a dedicated service, the transshipment service will provide the optimum solution for maintaining their supply chain,” the company said in the announcement.
