TC-HICT sets a new record for handling volume on mother ships in the Vietnam Northen region
In the first four months of 2022, TC-HICT has welcomed many new service lines consecutively. Doubling this joy, on the afternoon of April 12, TC-HICT continued to welcome MAERSK's MEGALOPOLIS vessel with the largest throughput ever.
The total import and export volume of the ship reached 7,686 TEUs, of which 3,814 TEUs for imports and 3,872 TEUs for exports. This is the record for handling volume on an international ship ever docked at the terminal, surpassing the previous record of M/V Daisy.
The vessel MEGALOPOLIS, with a tonnage of 62,172 DWT, with a length of 255.29m, belongs to MAERSK's TPX service route connecting the US West Coast with Hai Phong: Haiphong - Yantian - Ningbo - Los Angeles - East China.
MAERSK is the world's largest container shipper, with headquarters and branches in more than 130 countries, and a network of shipping services connecting major ports worldwide. MAERSK is also a shipping line that has attached, supported, trusted and brought service lines to TC-HICT since the early days of the terminal's operation. Therefore, this event further affirms the development cooperation between the shipping line and the terminal, and simultaneously demonstrates TC-HICT's constantly increasing operation capacity and service quality to always be a destination, a reliable choice of shipping lines.
