Shipping Lines Skip Indian Port Calls

JNPA and Mundra have reported several void calls from major shipping lines which would otherwise connect to US and European markets. Major chunk of containerised trade moving out of India is through Nhava Sheva or Mundra.

Mediterranean Shipping Co. (MSC) has skipped calls to India on its three services, the Himalaya Express (HEX) and IPAK for Europe and the INDUS for the US East Coast, in the last week.

Additionally, the carrier noted, “Due to some technical issues, our current week IPAK service vessel MSC Loretta Voyage IS227A is running behind schedule and will be making her normal rotation at all Indian Ports in Week 28. “All the containers which are gated-in for MSC LORETTA Voyage IS227A will be planned for loading as per the revised schedule.”

 “Furthermore, the vessel will slide down by a week and will call Nhava Sheva under subsequent voyage IS229A. Thus, Himalaya Express will be having blank sailing in Week 28,” said MSC.

Furthermore, German carrier Hapag-Lloyd has already had ongoing intermittent omissions for West India on its connection to North Europe, called the Indian Ocean Service (IOS), from July through September. The disruptions include three sailing omissions for West India this month, including two for Nhava Sheva and one for Mundra, which the carrier described as necessary to “improve the service’s schedule reliability.”
