In the wake of the explosions near Tianjin port on Wednesday 12th August, MSC confirms that Tianjin Pacific International Container Terminal (TPCT) which is used by MSC, is located 6 kilometers from the blast site at the East Port Area. All MSC employees onshore are safe and there has been no impact on MSC crewmembers onboard our vessels. We do not foresee any further disruption to the sailing schedules. All MSC onshore operations resumed on 14th August. However, customs house will only accept official export and import declarations from Monday, 17th August.

Interim services are available upon special request.

As the Tianjin Maritime Safety Administration office has prohibited all loading and discharging of hazardous shipments from the port, MSC Tianjin Customer Service Team is contacting customers with information on alternative cargo arrangements.
