MSC Launches New Nassau Service from Port Everglades

Wednesday, August 29, 2007
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is introducing a new service from Broward County’s Port Everglades to Nassau, Bahamas, planned for three weekly sailings. The new MSC Nassau, Bahamas service is targeting increased business from South Florida to the Bahamas with an eye on future transshipments through Port Everglades for cargo originating in other global markets.

Port officials estimate that MSC’s new Nassau service could generate an additional 20,000 TEUs annually for Port Everglades. MSC cargo is handled through Port Everglades Terminals (PET), which is Port Everglades’ second largest containerized cargo terminal operator. Port Everglades officials recently greeted the arrival of the first ship in the rotation, the 585 TEU, 7,565-ton MSC Aures.
