Service introduced in wake of Hanjin announcement and continues from Yantian

MSC’s MAPLE service is to resume on Friday 28th October, sailing from Yantian and including Vancouver in its full rotation.

The service was first introduced in September on the Transpacific Trade, designed to assist shippers in the wake of the Hanjin announcement.

Maple is an exclusive MSC provision, and since September has omitted three calls during the so-called ‘Golden Week’ period.

It will now resume its full service with a rotation which sees MSC Rochelle departing Yantian on 28th October and calling Shanghai, Busan, Long Beach and Vancouver.

MSC is committed to providing reliable service offerings to the trade, and in particular to meet the needs of shippers in the aftermath of Hanjin’s bankruptcy announcement.
