MSC rejects MCS Industries allegations

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced it is "shocked" to learn of the accusations made and the complaint filed by MCS Industries with the Federal Maritime Commission.

MSC said it received "no formal complaint by MCS Industries in advance of the filing, or in relation to the subsequent accusations made in the media, many of which remain vague and unsubstantiated and are incorrectly targeted at MSC."

While MSC is still studying some of the contents of this particular complaint, the company does not recognise the alleged shortcomings in booking the cargo allocations provided for this shipper, according to the statement.

Furthermore, MSC added it is not illegitimately selling space allotted to MCS Industries under its service contracts to other shippers.

The Swiss liner operator also rejects the accusation of collusion between carriers put forward in the complaint.

MSC and COSCO are not in the same container-carrying alliance and as such have no operational cooperation by way of Vessel Sharing Agreement (VSA) or Slot Charter Agreement (SCA) anywhere in the world, according to the MSC statement.
