The Tan Cang Cai Mep-Thi Vai port in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau successfully received a 160,000-tonne container ship on Monday.

This is the second port in the Thi Vai-Cai Mep port complex receiving a 160,000-tonne ship.

Earlier, Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) welcomed ships with the capacity of 160,000 tonnes and over.

The Tan Cang Cai Mep-Thi Vai is a deep-water port in Tan Thanh District. It is allowed to receive ships of 160,000 weight starting from February 20 by the Vietnam Maritime Administration.

Vu Kim Duan, director of the port, said that the first welcome for a 160,000-tonne ship showed the port’s capacity to receive and provide loading and unloading services for international container ships. — VNS
