MSC drops interest in Global Ports Holding

Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) has terminated its pursuit of London-listed Global Ports Holding, owned by Turkish businessman Mehmet Kutman.

As well as a widespread cruise portfolio, Global Ports operates a couple of commercial ports including Montenegro’s largest port.

MSC, privately held by the Aponte family, runs the world’s largest containerline as well as the third largest cruise line in the world.
