MSC will offer its "Swan Service" again as an independent service starting on 9 June. That service, departing from China, will be in addition to 2M's existing network.
The "Swan Service" will connect major Chinese ports with northern Europe, including Port of Antwerp-Bruges. As such, Antwerp will be the first port of call in Europe. The service will guarantee a wider range of port connections, higher frequency and faster transit times. In doing so, they will be using the Persian Gulf logistics network in order to connect the East and West to the King Abdullah Port as well.
The full route includes the ports of Qingdao - Ningbo - Yantian - Tanjung Pelepas - Port of Antwerp-Bruges - Gdynia - Gdansk - Klaipeda - King Abdullah Port - Singapore - Qingdao.
