Shipping line MSC to set up airfreight arm


Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has become the latest global container shipping company to develop an air freight arm.

MSC, which by some counts in the world’s largest container shipping operator is developing an MSC Air Cargo solution to complement its seafreight services.

It follows similar moves by Maersk and CMA CGM.

The service 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

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

MSC chief executive Soren 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. 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.”
