HCMC – Margrethe Maersk, one of the world’s largest container ships, arrived at Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 25.

The container vessel, operated by 2M Alliance, a container shipping industry alliance between Maersk Line and the Mediterranean Shipping Company, is able to carry over 18,000 twenty-foot containers at a time. It measures nearly 400 meters in length and 59 meters in width.

The ship’s port call has marked an important milestone in the maritime industry of Vietnam, making CMIT one of some 20 major ports worldwide capable of receiving vessels of this size.

The port’s eligibility to handle such huge container ships has demonstrated good management capacity and coordination among the competent agencies and port businesses, which have smoothed the way for the port to grow further.
