The Tan Cang – Hai Phong International Container Terminal (TC-HICT) on May 19 berthed a super tonnage ship called ONE CONTRIBUTION.

With a capacity of 8,560 TEUs and a length of 316 meters, the ship is one of the 11 super-vessels of a joint venture of Chinese Taiwan’s Yang Ming, Japan’s ONE, Germany’s LIoyd, and HMM from the Republic of Korea. It operates routes from the Northern and Southern regions of Vietnam to the West Coast of the U.S.

TC-HICT is a joint venture of the Tan Cang Saigon (Saigon Newport) Corporation, MOL Shipping and the Itochu Group from Japan, and Wan Hai Lines Ltd. from Taiwan (China).

Commencing its operations on May 13, 2018, TC-HICT includes two 750-meter-long container piers and is the first deep-water port in the key Northern economic region.

The port can accommodate vessels of up to 12,000 TEUs and ensure a cargo load of 1.1 million TEUs each year.

TC-HICT currently provides eight direct service routes a week, including three trans-Pacific routes, two to India, and three intra-Asia routes for Vietnam’s exports and imports.
