MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company Plans Tempe, Arizona, Campus

MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, a global leader in transportation and logistics, plans to establish an operations center in Tempe, Arizona. The project is expected to create 170 jobs.

The 28,302-square-foot space will be located on the 6th floor of the 777 Tower on the Arizona State University (ASU) campus.

“We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening our latest branch office in Tempe in 2024, welcoming new team members to the MSC family,” said Fabio Santucci, President, MSC USA. “The opening of this new location is a significant step towards establishing a more robust presence in the rapidly expanding West Coast and Gulf regions. Furthermore, as we seek to grow our presence in the area, this presents us with an excellent opportunity to strengthen our existing ties with customers in the region.”

MSC is a world leader in global container shipping and provides an integrated network of road, rail and sea transport resources. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the company operates in over 675 offices across more than 155 countries.

“Mediterranean Shipping Company’s new office highlights Arizona’s attractiveness as a national logistics hub,” noted Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “With access to major world markets and modern infrastructure, Arizona provides a premier environment to support MSC’s shipping and logistics operations.”

“The announcement of MSC, the largest shipping company in the world, is a testament to Tempe’s workforce pipeline through ASU and the region’s presence in ecommerce and logistics,” added Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “Global container markets are a barometer of global trade, and as the No. 1 market for foreign direct investment in the United States, this is further confirmation that Greater Phoenix has emerged as an international player.”
