MSC Announces updates to its Intra-Asia Network Services

MSC, in a bid to revamping its intra-Asia network, has announced updates to four existing services, beginning end of April.

Changes will be made to the service coverage for Seagull, Orchid, Seahorse and New Origami. These enhancements will offer competitive transit times between China and Southeast Asia, particularly from China to Vietnam and Thailand and new direct connections between China and Malaysia.

These newly updated services are expected to improve MSC’s position in the growing intra-Asia market and seamlessly link to their global ocean liner network, as well as to their inland and barge services within the Asia region.
