The company, a member of the Việt Nam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines), received total cargo volume of more than 13 million tonnes and gained total revenue of VNĐ852 billion (US$36.3 million) in the first half of this year, Nguyễn Tường Anh, deputy general director of Hải Phòng Port JSC, was quoted as saying by Giao thông (Transport) newspaper.
Those figures were up by 10.5 per cent in cargo volume and 15.1 per cent in revenue from the same period last year, he said.
According to a Hải Phòng port representative, the company has been improving the capacity of loading and unloading equipment, including through the application of information technology.
