The newly built deep-water Tan Cang – Cai Mep container port in Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province received the first ship of a direct shipping lane between Vietnam and the US on July 7.
The boat’s shipping company said it would use six ships, with a loading capacity of 4,000-4,300 TEU, on the route: Malaysia – Singapore – Vietnam – China – Tokyo – Osaka – Long Beach – Oakland.
The ship will leave Tan Cang – Cai Mep port every Wednesday and arrive in the US fifteen days later.
