The Tan Cang Hai Phong International Container Terminal Co., Ltd (TC-HICT) welcomed its first container vessel of the year - WAN HAI 315 - the AA9 service line of the Wan Hai lines from Taiwan (China).

This is a service route which is operated by the shipping line which features eight 2,500 TEU to 2,800 TEU ships and serves to directly connect Hai Phong with the United States’ east coast.

The route passes through numerous destinations including TC-HICT, Shekou, Kaohsiung, Qingdao, Balboa, Charleston, New York, Singapore, and back to TC-HICT.

The opening of an additional AA9 service route linking Hai Phong to the US’ East Coast is anticipated to help increase the frequency of ships docking at TC-HICT each week. This will therefore serve to provide options for importers and exporters in northern Vietnam to connect goods to the US, which is currently the country’s largest export market.

Despite the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, employees of TC-HICT have made consistent efforts to provide top-quality services to their customers and ensure the continuity in the global flow of trade.

TC-HICT expects it will receive additional trans-oceanic service routes in the year ahead, deserving the most modern and largest deep-water port in northern Vietnam.
