MSC Reshuffles Services, Adds More Mexico Calls

Container shipping giant Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has made changes in its Canada Gulf Bridge service, scheduled to come into effect from June 19.

The company said that the changes to the loop will now feature a Southbound transit from Houston, to the two Mexico ports of Altamira and Veracruz.

MSC added that the Northbound service will then leave Veracruz, destined for Philadelphia and Montreal.

“Providing direct routes to and from Mexico allows MSC to acknowledge the significant change taking place in the manufacturing sector in this part of the globe,” the company said, adding that it is estimated that by 2017, as many as one in four American cars will have been built in Mexico.

In a separate announcement, MSC said that it plans to add a new port of call to its California Express service, namely, Manzanillo in Mexico.

The addition, which will come into effect on July 9 with the vessel MSC ANS MC623A, provides a direct route to the port as part of the route from Balboa to Long Beach.

Previously, the service had offered only a transshipment facility for Manzanillo.
