MSC’s Europe-US service begins calling JAXPORT


The first ship in MSC’s European ScanBaltic to USA service has begun calling JAXPORT with the arrival of MSC ENGLAND.

The bi-weekly, direct European container service calls seven destinations in Northern Europe.

The port rotation is as follows: Klaipeda, Lithuania; Gdynia, Poland; Gothenburg, Sweden; Bremerhaven, Germany; Felixstowe, England; Antwerp, Belgium; Le Havre, France; New York; Philadelphia; Norfolk; Jacksonville; and Klaipeda.

SSA Atlantic provided stevedoring services at the SSA Jacksonville Container Terminal (JCT) at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal.

ScanBaltic to USA is MSC’s fifth container service at JAXPORT.

“We are grateful for MSC’s long-term partnership as we continue to experience growth at our terminals,” said JAXPORT Chief Commercial Officer Robert Peek.

“We are excited about this service addition which provides shippers and customers more routes to move their cargo to key markets.”

MSC also offers existing services from JAXPORT to destinations in Asia through the 2M Alliance; a North America service, Canada Gulf Bridge; and two Caribbean services, Bahamas Express and Florida Gulf Feeder.

This announcement comes more than a month after the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) presented JAXPORT with a $35 million refund for unused prepayments from the recently completed Jacksonville Harbor Deepening project.

More recently, JAXPORT issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a long-term lease of up to 79 acres of industrial property on JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
