Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is updating its rotation for its Asia – US Santana service, adding in Port Houston to its call list.
The Santana service, shifting from the US West Coast to the East Coast to meet “continued strong demand”, will now rotate as follows: Haiphong – Shanghai – Ningbo – Houston – Charleston – New York – Haiphong, MSC wrote in a service update.
“The updated service complements the existing network services, giving MSC the possibility to offer further options to its customers,” the line wrote.
The first vessel on the revised rotation for the Santana service will be MSC PRATITI voyage UX152A, ETA Haiphong, Vietnam, on 31 December 2021.
The addition of Qingdao will offer a direct call and competitive transit times, opening new lines for MSC between China and the US Midwest via Tacoma, and into Canada.
