MSC will launch shuttle services connecting south and central China with Long Beach in October.

In an effort to meet demand from continued strong transpacific market demand and cope with the challenging service schedules for North America West Coast, MSC is launching two new weekly shuttle services.

The rotation of MSC’s new Puma service will be DaChan Bay – Shekou – Long Beach – DaChan Bay, with the first sailing by MSC Bhavya from DaChan Bay on 3 October.

The rotation of MSC’s new Mustang service will be Shanghai – Long Beach – Shanghai, with the first sailing of MSC Anya from Shanghai on 16 October.

The Port of Long Beach along with Los Angeles is currently experiencing record levels of congestion.
