THANH HOA — The Nghi Son deep-water port in the central province of Thanh Hoa has recently welcomed a Panamanian vessel of 45,000 DWT.


It is the second largest ship of its kind ever docked in the port.

The well-equipped port welcomed the vessel named Qi Yuan without resort to transshipment, which helped save cost and time of cargo handling.

Earlier in February, the port hailed Mega Grace ship from the Republic of Korea.

Nghi Son port strives to welcome one ship of up to 40,000 DWT and two ships of between 20,000 and 40,000 DWT a month. This will help it achieve its target of handling 2 million tonnes of cargo this year. — VNS
