MSC Announces an increase from West Med to USA or July 1st, 2022

Due to challenges in maintaining service schedules on the trade lane from congestion at West Med and US ports,  Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced a price increase on shipments from the West Med to USA ports next month as follows:

MSC Price increase announcement West Med to USA

To: USA ports

Effective: July 1, 2022
