MSC Gulf updates its SAEC String 2 Service

MSC has announced that it will make adjustments to its Gulf to SAEC String 2 service in order to increase coverage and overall service quality.

A new port destination in Brazil will be added by the introduction of Paranagua Port in the rotation starting from the MSC Lausanne Voyage 2330 S/N.

The first call to Paranagua will be on 1 September 2023.

Furthermore, beginning with the MSC Lausanne journey 2338S/N, a ninth vessel will be introduced on a 63-day rotation as MSC seeks to improve network dependability and cut emissions by lowering vessel speed.

Regardless of the operational changes capacity will remain unaffected.

The new rotation of the service will be as follows:

Veracruz – Altamira – Houston – New Orleans – Cartagena – Suape – Santos – Buenos Aires – Montevideo – Rio Grande – Navegantes – Paranagua – Santos – Rio de Janeiro – Cartagena – (Veracruz)

In June 2023, MSC planned to change the port rotation of its Santana Service as part of its ongoing efforts to simplify its services for enhanced transit times and schedule dependability.

More recently, MSC announced it is changing the port rotation of its Levante Express service to meet market demands.
