MSC upgrades Indus 2 service

MSC has announced the addition of a port call at Halifax, Canada, on the Indus 2 service, aiming to offer a direct call and competitive transit times.

The Swiss/Italian container line said the addition will help customers who wish to ship cargo to Toronto and Midwestern US cities such as Chicago and Detroit.

MSC will therefore substantially increase its North America coverage via three sailings to the US East Coast & Gulf and one direct sailing to Canada.

The first sailing from Mundra will start on 7 September with MSC Stella, voyage IX136A.

The revised port rotation of the Indus 2 service will be Mundra – Nhava Sheva – Gioia Tauro – Sines – Halifax – Norfolk ­– Baltimore – Miami – Freeport – Mundra
