MSC’s new Scan Baltic service makes first call to PhilaPort
On 14 April, PhilaPort welcomed the maiden call of a new ocean liner service to The Port of Philadelphia’s Packer Avenue Marine Terminal.
The container ship M/V Cornelia is part of the Mediterranean Shipping Company’s (MSC) brand new Scan Baltic service.
This service offers direct connections to Bremerhaven, Germany; Gothenburg, Sweden; and Klaipeda, Lithuania.
“A weekly Baltic call fits perfectly into our portfolio of services,” said Jeff Theobald, executive director & CEO of PhilaPort, adding “We are excited that Scan Baltic gives us access to all the other Baltic countries for cargoes such as forest products and seafood.”
Sean Mahoney, PhilaPort’s director of marketing, commented, “We are very thankful that we have additional capacity. Fortunately for us, we are adding space and equipment, which will allow many more services to call at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal.”
