NDO – International freighters, the Hong Fu from Hong Kong (China) with 24,000 tonnes of wheat, the Menelaos from Liberia with 24,000 tonnes of wheat and the Indian Goodwill with 32,000 tonnes of dried beans, arrived at Cai Lan port in northern Quang Ninh province on February 11 (the 4th day of the first lunar month).

Cai Lan port has mobilised manpower and equipment to urgently unload cargo from the freighters in the shortest period of time possible.
