Mediterranean Shipping adjusts the call ports of SANTANA services! (First flight on December 15 after upgrade)


SC Mediterranean Shipping (MSC) plans to adjust the call port of SANTANA services to the port of Qingdao, China, in order to improve the reliability of shipping schedules and further reduce transit times. The upgraded route made its maiden voyage on December 15, departing from Qingdao to Mexico, Panama, the Caribbean and the East coast of the United States.

This initiative will provide the Qingdao region and the North China shipping market with the fastest voyages and ample shipping space available from Qingdao to Mexico, Panama, Dominica and the East Coast of the United States. At the same time, our feeder network in CRISTOBAL and CAUCEDO provides intensive coverage to more than a dozen ports in Central and South America, the Caribbean and the east coast of South America.

At present, the export commodities in North China mainly include new energy vehicles, machinery and equipment, clothing, furniture, chemicals, refrigerator products, etc. The upgraded route will be able to greatly meet the direct air transport services of these commodities from Qingdao to Mexico, Panama, the Caribbean and the east coast of the United States.
