Mediterranean Shipping Co. has regained privileges via the United States trusted trader program after a temporary suspension stemming from the June 17 seizure of 20 tons of cocaine from a vessel at the Port of Philadelphia. After the largest US drug bust took place on board on the MSC’s ships, US Customs and Border Protection placed a 90-day suspension from C-TPAT which ended on Sept. 16. MSC vessels have been involved in three other drug-related incidents this year.
