MSC, Blank Sailings

Due to the anticipated slowdown in demand during and after the Golden Week holiday, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company plans to exclude sailings during this period, followed by a temporary structural adjustment to its Asia-Europe network.

The change will help us to match capacity with the expected weaker market demand for shipping services.

MSC plans to suspend the Swan service during this period, with a view to restoring the service, provided that market demand recovers towards the end of the year.

However, you may continue to place bookings as usual as we are arranging alternate routings.

Starting week 39, POD Le Havre will be cancelled from Lion service and induced on Condor service, until further notice.
