MSC has announced the addition of a port call at Halifax on the Indus 2 service. The addition of Halifax will offer a direct call and very competitive transit times, opening new perspectives for MSC between India and Canada, serving customers who wish to ship cargo to Toronto and Midwestern US cities such as Chicago and Detroit.
MSC will therefore substantially increase its North America coverage via three sailings to the U.S. East Coast & Gulf and one direct sailing to Canada.
The first sailing from Mundra will start on 7 September with the 6724-TEU MSC Stella.
The revised port rotation will be as follows: Mundra – Nhava Sheva – Gioia Tauro – Sines – Halifax – Norfolk – Baltimore – Miami – Freeport – Mundra
