About MSC

MSC provides its shipping container transport service in a variety of industries including retail, chemicals and petrochemicals, automotive, agriculture and mining.

MSC Vessels

The company has a fleet of over 510 vessels. It handles project cargo as well as operating its shipping container transport service.

MSC Terminals and Ports

Like many of the shipping companies TSL works with, MSC has container terminals in various spots around the world, including in Africa, Brazil, China, Europe, the US and the Middle East. It also has dry ports – these are inland terminals which are connected to seaports by road or rail. Here, cargo delivery can be carried out more efficiently than in the busier ports.

MSC Equipment

MSC uses Smart containers for international shipping. These are equipped with electronics which communicate certain data, for example position, door openings, movement and shocks, to assist in the transportation process.

International Shipping from Australia with MSC

The company’s vessels call at the Australian ports of Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Bell Bay. MSC has its own container terminal in Australia, as well as in several other countries. It also uses a number of road and rail routes to link to other destinations throughout the country.
