Swiss MSC to expand services to Iran
Iran said on Sunday that the world’s second largest shipping company MSC from Switzerland will soon expand its services to the country’s ports.
Iran’s Ministry of Roads and Urban Development in a statement said an agreement had been signed with the MSC by means of which the global shipping giant will increase calls to Iran’s Bandar Abbas, Chabahar and Bandar Imam ports.
The agreement – that has been signed with the Ports and Maritime Organization Iran – will also facilitate the shipment of Iranian goods from international ports to the country through MSC.
This came at a time that Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann is in Iran on a landmark three-day visit.
The media reported in January that the MSC had started calling at the country’s southern ports after a hiatus of six years.
