MSC and Ellerman sign slot agreement for Atlantic routes

Ellerman City Liners and MSC have signed an agreement, according to which, Ellerman will utilise a combination of MSC capacity and its own independent vessel between ports in ScanBaltic, Northern Europe and the Atlantic Coast of the United States.

The agreement includes a set weekly volume, with an option for Ellerman to increase as required. The deal covers both dry and reefer containers and will commence on or around 1 January 2024 from the port of Klaipeda in Lithuania.

Peter Andrews, commercial director of Ellerman, said, “This agreement allows Ellerman to operate with greater efficiency, reducing our environmental footprint whilst also broadening our geographical scope in both Europe and the United States.”

The agreement covers routes between ports in Sweden, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium and France, and ports on the Atlantic Coast of the United States, from New York to Florida. It also includes the capacity to extend services to include routes around the world.

Pasquale Formisano, senior vice president of MSC, commented, “I’m very pleased we’re extending our strategic partnership with Ellerman, one of the shipping industry’s great names. This agreement is all about efficiency. Guaranteed cargo means we can operate at maximum capacity and, therefore, minimise the environmental impact of each TEU we carry. The more we can do that, the more we can reduce emissions.”
