MSC Upgrades New Kiwi Service

Switzerland-headquartered Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) plans to enhance its New Kiwi Service operating between Australia, New Caledonia and New Zealand, by adding a new port of call into Bell Bay, Tasmania. 

The New Kiwi Service has been running in its current format since February 2015, with fixed weekly port calls into Bell Bay.

The company is now offering two fixed port calls in Bell Bay each week and the service is linking Tasmania directly to Noumea and New Zealand.

The first vessel to call at Bell Bay via the upgraded service will be the 2005-built boxship Malte Rambow on December 8, 2016.

The port rotation of the New Kiwi Service will be as follows, with round trip transit times remaining unchanged: Sydney, Brisbane (Australia), Noumea (New Caledonia), Tauranga, Auckland (New Zealand), Bell Bay, Melbourne, Bell Bay, Sydney (Australia).
