The growth potential of Vietnam was highlighted earlier this week when the second of two major container terminals was opened within two weeks of the last.

The Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) handled its first vessel earlier this week, when the CMA CGM Columba arrived at the port. With a capacity of 11,500 containers, the Columba is also the largest ever vessel to call in Vietnam.

The terminal has a capacity of 1.1 million containers. It is located 50km south-east of Ho Chi Minh City and it is the first to offer shipping lines direct access to the newly dredged 14 metre draught Cai Mep Terminal Channel.

To discuss the possibilities the opening of this new container terminal brings to world trade possibilities and the implications of its opening on your shipping requirements, please contact Mercator Cargo Systems today on 02392 75 65 75.
