MSC has announced a new direct port call at Pisco Port (PEPIO) in Peru on its NWC-US-SAWC service.
The port is located in the Ica area, the grape capital of the country.
The first MSC vessel, MSC Romane NX344R, is expected to arrive at Pisco Port on 9 November.
MSC will provide a weekly service connecting Pisco with US via transshipment in Panama, and Northern Europe directly for the whole season.
“The proximity of the port to the table grape farms will allow us to save time and preserve the quality of the product from the origin to the destination,” MSC reported in a released statement.
Earlier this month, the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) dismissed the latest Charge Complaint against the world’s largest container line, Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) and discontinued the Order to Show Cause (OSC) proceeding.
