NDO - Lao-Viet International Port JSC and Tan Cang Shipping held a ceremony on April 10 to receive the first container ship at Lao-Viet International Port (Vung Ang Port).

The shipment was transported by Tan Cang – Northern Logistics JSC from Tan Cang Port in Hai Phong to Lao-Viet International Port in Ha Tinh Province.

Vung Ang Port is an international seaport serving cargo transportation to Laos, Northeastern Thailand and central provinces of Vietnam. The port can accommodate cargo ships of up to 50,000 DWT and container ships of up to 2,000 TEU.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Nhat appreciated the efforts by Lao-Viet International Port JSC, Tan Cang Shipping and relevant agencies in Ha Tinh to organise the reception of the first container ship at Vung Ang Port.

He noted that investment in industry with the focus on the Vung Ang economic zone and sea-based economy is necessary for Ha Tinh to make economic breakthroughs.

The transport route of Tan Cang Shipping through Vung Ang Port is the concretisation of the project on promoting logistics services in Ha Tinh Province until 2030 and the initial result of the cooperation between Saigon Newport Corporation and the People’s Committee of Ha Tinh in early 2021.
