Ellerman City Liners has signed with Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) to use MSC capacity and its own independent vessel for shipping between ScanBaltic, Northern Europe, and the US Atlantic Coast.
The agreement includes a set weekly volume, with an option for Ellerman to increase as required. It covers both dry cargo and reefers and will commence on or around 1 January 2024 from Klaipeda.
Pasquale Formisano, Senior Vice President of MSC, said: “I’m very pleased we’re extending our strategic partnership with Ellerman, one of the shipping industry’s great names.
“This agreement is all about efficiency. Guaranteed cargo means we can operate at maximum capacity and, therefore, minimise the environmental impact of each TEU we carry. The more we can do that, the more we can reduce emissions,” Formisano added.

Peter Andrews, Commercial Director of Ellerman, said: “We are delighted to announce this co-operation with MSC, the world’s largest shipping company.
“This agreement allows Ellerman to operate with greater efficiency, reducing our environmental footprint whilst also broadening our geographical scope in both Europe and and the United States,” Andrews continued.
The agreement covers routes between ports in Sweden, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, UK, Belgium and France, and ports on the Atlantic Coast of the US, from New York to Florida. It also includes the capacity to extend services to include routes around the world, according to MSC.
Earlier this month, MSC received the ‘Best Shipping Line – Asia – Africa’ title at the Asian Freight, Logistics, and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards.
More recently, MSC and Ferrovie dello Stato (FS) Italiane agreed to develop a new firm specialising in intermodal transport and logistics.
