MSC adds new Sunrise Service connecting Japan, Korea and Russia

The Sunrise is a weekly service opening a new route between Japan, Korea and the major container ports in eastern Russia, Vladivostok and Vostochniy, offering additional business opportunities for our customers. This new service complements MSC’s recently updated Golden Horn service, which operates between northern China, Korea and Russia.

These two services will not only offer new perspectives at a regional level but also at a global level in terms of access to the most important rail gateways linking Asia to Europe via Vladivostok. Sunrise’s first sailings will be:

MSC Nora, voyage HT049R, ETA Busan 30 November 2020

La Tour, voyage HT048A, ETA Busan 2 December 2020

The full port rotation for the new Sunrise service is: Yokohama – Osaka – Kobe – Hakata – Busan – Vladivostok – Vostochniy – Busan
