MSC is not the target of a recent Australian Maritime Safety Authority instruction about crew wages: this is directed to the operator of this vessel. The vessel was off-hired immediately upon MSC becoming aware of the AMSA findings.

MSC has a 98% crew retention rate on the ships it owns and manages, thanks largely to the good working conditions, regular pay and best-in-class training opportunities for the crew MSC employs directly.
