MSC has announced the addition of a port call at Qingdao, China, on the Chinook service.

The addition of Qingdao will offer a direct call and very competitive transit times, opening new perspectives for MSC between China and the US Midwest via Tacoma, and into Canada.

The first sailing from Qingdao will start on 21 December with MSC DEILA, voyage number UK151A.

The revised port rotation will be as follows: Yantian - Shanghai - Qingdao - Busan - Tacoma - Vancouver – Yantian
