MSC Thailand has recently been voted as the ‘2019 Best Container Line from Thailand to Europe’ by local shippers, in an annual award organised by the Thailand National Shippers’ Council. This is a special and meaningful win as the result was determined through votes by over 500 Thai shippers, and MSC emerged with the top score on a set of criteria including reliability, service quality, pricing, availability and document accuracy.
Peter Blohm, Managing Director at MSC Thailand, is extremely proud of this win and said, “It’s fantastic to see our hard work being recognized by the industry, and to emerge as the best line of choice to Europe. It also comes at an exciting time for the company as we will soon open a bigger office in Laem Chabang.”
MSC Thailand opened its first branch in Bangkok in February 2001, but prior to that, MSC had been doing business in the country for several years with the help of a third-party agent. Over the years, MSC has expanded its staff strength and office size.
MSC has also subsequently set up offices in Songkla (Southern Thailand) and a vessel operations office in Laem Chabang port (Eastern Thailand), and as from November 1, 2019, the company will establish a bigger Laem Chabang branch office to provide a broader range of commercial services.
“Thailand is a very interesting market because it has it all: deep sea terminals, inland depots, barge terminals, and at MSC we pride ourselves on offering shipping and door-to-door logistics services to our customers, enabling them to move cargo anywhere in the world. Laem Chabang, with its deepsea ports, is an important area for us and our new, expanded office will allow us to provide more efficient and direct service to our customers here,” adds Mr. Blohm.
MSC is also continuously looking at global developments and launching new services to meet evolving market demands. As an addition to our already extensive portfolio of services, MSC launched a new Intra-Asia Seagull service in March to provide direct access to Vietnam and China for Thai shippers.
