WORLD'S LARGEST CONTAINER LINE MSC ENTERS AIR CARGO MARKET

The world's largest container shipping company, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA aims to enter the air freight market, starting the development of a new MSC Air Cargo solution.

According to a recent announcement, MSC Air Cargo has been under development for several months and the new solution will be available from early 2023, following the delivery of the first of four MSC-branded Boeing 777-200F aircraft that will be operated by Atlas Air, a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc.

"This is our first step into this market and we plan to continue exploring various avenues to develop air cargo in a way that complements our core business of container shipping," stated MSC chief executive officer, Soren Toft.

MSC has appointed Jannie Davel, formerly of Delta Cargo, Emirates SkyCargo and DHL, to develop its air cargo business and to build the team that will run the new sector of MSC.

Commenting on the new initiative, Toft said, "We are delighted to announce the development of MSC Air Cargo and to welcome Jannie Davel to spearhead this exciting new offering for MSC clients."
