MSC announces Chinese New Year Blank Sailings

MSC announces a blank sailings program on its Asia-Europe network during weeks 1-12 2020 to rationalize the capacity supply during this period.

“However, you may continue to place your bookings with limited disruption as we are arranging a contingency plan with alternative services,” MSC adds.
