“Therefore, the Ministry of Transport agreed to officially receive container ships with a tonnage of 132,900 DWT to reduce the load in and out of TC-HICT from May 1”, official letter issued by Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Nhat sign clearly.
The Ministry of Transport assigns the Vietnam Maritime Administration to organize the adjustment and approval of the plan to ensure the safety of container ships with a tonnage of over 100,000 DWT to 132,900 DWT to reduce the safety load in and out of TC-HICT port.
Vietnam Maritime Administration is required to direct Hai Phong Maritime Port Authority to only license container ships with a ton of up to 132,900 DWT to enter and leave TC-HICT port when ensuring absolute safety, maritime security and environmental protection; at the same time strictly control the placement of navigational navigation, the number of hybrid vessels and other conditions according to the approved plan.
According to Hai Phong New Port International Container Port Co., Ltd., the reception of ships with large tongs in and out of TC-HITC port has contributed to bringing exports of the Northern region directly to the European and North American markets without having to transfer via Singapore and Hong Kong. This contributes to significantly reducing transportation costs, increasing competitiveness for Vietnam’s exported goods. It also attracts a large number of goods transiting the Northeast through the East-West corridor and the South China region.
