 Swiss headquartered Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced two new services alled the ‘Lone Star Express’ which will operate between Asia and the US Gulf. 

This new service will become a new Gateway to/from the US Gulf in anticipation of increased demand. 
At the same time, MSC’s Everglades service will be renamed ‘Amberjack’ and restructured to include a call to New York, this change ensures both services will operate at optimum efficiency.  
All changes will be in effect from the first week of May 2016 (departing Asia).
