After reporting better performance in 2018, Vietnamese shipping giant Vietnam Maritime Corporation (VIMC) has set higher targets for this year.


The Marco Polo container ship, with a capacity of nearly 17,000 TEUs, docked at the Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) in the southern province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau on January 11.


The Vietnam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines) will open a logistics centre for container shipping on December 17 as part of moves to restructure the State-owned firm, according to Deputy Director General Do Thi Ngoc Trang.

SP-SSA International Terminal, located in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau’s Cai Mep area, has handled one of the highest container volumes ever from a single vessel call.
