MEDITERRANEAN Shipping Company says changes to it Australia Express Service will result in faster transit times for Europe-bound cargo.
The changes were announced late last week.
According to MSC, the revised AES will ensure better and faster coverage by omitting the ports of Salalah, Djibouti and King Abdullah Port, before calling at Gioia Tauro, near the ‘toe’ of Italy.
The first vessel on the revised route, MSC India, is expected to leave Sydney on October 30.
The full rotation is to be:
Melbourne – Adelaide – Fremantle – Singapore – Colombo – Suez – Gioia Tauro – Valencia – London Gateway – Antwerp – Le Havre – Fos-Sur-Mer – La Spezia – Naples – Gioia Tauro – Suez – Pointe De Gallets – Port Louis – Sydney – Melbourne.
